If they don't trade him this summer, I expect them to trade him before the deadline.
Oilers might as well see what they can get for him.
Knowing the Oilers, they probably want another 1st rd. pick. I'd prefer to keep our 1st rd 2012.
I know there are a lot of Columbus fans who want him badly.
The Oilers will try to make the PO this year so I think they will wait and see
