NHL Trade Rumors: Oilers and Flyers


The Philadelphia Flyers are reportedly in talks with the Edmonton Oilers about Jordan Eberle. Eberle has 13 points in 17 games with the Oilers so far this season. This is the kind of offence the Flyers are looking for. However with there underwhelming season what will they be giving to the Oilers in return.

The question is do the Flyers have the fire power to trade for a young top tier talent like Eberle. The Oilers do need defencemen and Luke Schenn is on the trade block but will Luke be enough for Eberle.

I don’t know how much merit is behind this rumor. Eberle’s name may have been mentioned in talks between the Flyers and Oilers but I think the chances of Eberle going to Philadelphia are slim. I think if the Oilers are going to trade any of their young talent it will be Eberle or Nail Yakupov but I don’t think their trade partner will be Philadelphia.
