The Edmonton Oilers' season has not gone as anyone had expected. From Stanley Cup contenders before the season began to nearly at the bottom of the Pacific Division standings.

While it's certainly easy to place the blame on goaltending and their poor defensive performances, overall the team has been very underwhelming.
There's no quick fix to Edmonton's situation and while General Manager Ken Holland is working the phone lines, something he probably should've done this summer, it won't be easy to make a deal.
The Oilers have been linked to plenty of goaltenders around the league, including Montreal's trio of Samuel Montembeault, Jake Allen and Cayden Primeau. But again, making a deal is easier said than done.
In terms of what assets the Oilers could move to make a deal, according to Ryan Rishaug, likely only three are unavailable - Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and this year's first-round pick. Everything else could potentially be on the table.
"All eyes are on Ken Holland right now and rightfully so. My sense is, outside their first round pick, all assets and options (29,97 aside) are in play to try and find a fix. Prospects, 2nd rounders, roster players, all of it on the table"

It'll be interesting to keep an eye on the Oilers to see what moves, if any, they make in the coming weeks. If they have any hopes of turning things around, they'll need to do so quickly and have McDavid and Draisaitl at the top of their game, along with their depth plays contributing and everyone playing better on the defensive side of the puck.
