Souray trade talk remains quiet

Oilers GM Steve Tambellini is having a difficult time trying to trade veteran defenseman Sheldon Souray, according to the Edmonton Sun.

Souray has been on the trade block since last season and the Oilers have indicated that they do not want him back on the team after he demanded to be traded.

"We're still trying to see if there's some situation that would make sense from a trade standpoint," Tambellini told the Sun. "We still just want to see if there was time to not just make a trade, but do something that helps the Oilers."

The Columbus Blue Jackets are one of the teams interested in Souray, who is skating near his home in Los Angeles.

Tambellini indicated that sending Souray to the AHL is possible, but it does not seem likely.

"It's an option but I'm not sure what I'm going to do with that yet," he said. "I know he's healthy and hopefully we get something done soon."
