NHL Rumors: Edmonton Oilers, and Five Potential Landing Spots For Mike Hoffman

Kurt Leavins of the Edmonton Journal: Though it was suggested on an American radio show that Edmonton Oilers GM Ken Holland may be “done” for the offseason, doesn’t believe that is the case.

The Oilers will have around $23 million coming off their salary cap next season, and there are indications that they are pursuing a contract extension for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

The Oilers should look at defenseman Madison Bowey for added depth on the right side. Holland had Bowey when he was with the Red Wings. With Oscar Klefbom headed to the LTIR, it would give them enough room to sign Bowey and to re-sign Ethan Bear.
