Oilers, Leafs talking trade?
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs are reportedly involved in trade discussions, as the two clubs have been keeping an eye on each other lately.

Oilers scouts have been on schedule to attend several Leafs' games lately, as it's believed Toronto GM Brian Burke is interested in the likes of forwards Sam Gagner and Ales Hemsky.

While Hemsky doesn't entirely fit into Burke's gritty mentality, his playmaking abilities could benefit the likes of snipers Phil Kessel and Joffrey Lupul, who plays both wings.

Hemsky, 28, has been having an off-season, on pace for only 36 points in 69 games, to date, and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

Gagner, meanwhile, has been rumored to be dangled as trade bait for a good portion of the season and could be dealt before the Feb. 27 trade deadline.

The Oilers are looking to bolster their blueline and could be eyeing Maple Leafs defenseman Cody Franson.
