Oilers active on the trade front
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Edmonton Oilers are working on a number of different trade possibilities and could be very active between now and the conclusion of the NHL Draft.

Oilers GM Craig MacTavish has been involved in several trade discussions Saturday alone, and is believed to have a few different deals in the works.

It's unclear, however, if any of them will be finalized in the near future.

The Oilers have been actively shopping center Shawn Horcoff and right wing Ales Hemsky, while entertaining calls for forward Sam Gagner.

MacTavish has also been working on a multi-year contract extension with Gagner, which might take him off the trade market.

The Oilers are in the market for a top-four defenseman and a top-six winger.

It has also been widely reported that the Oilers have revisited trade talks with the Vancouver Canucks regarding goaltender Roberto Luongo, though it's not yet known if Luongo would reconsider a trade to Edmonton.

The Oilers have been speaking with the Philadelphia Flyers about defenseman Braydon Coburn, while the New York Islanders are believed to have inquired about Hemsky.
