An NHL insider has linked Guentzel with a contending Western Canadian team.

Friedman says Oilers will be big players in a Guentzel trade

The Oilers want to strike a deal at the deadline, it's been made clear, in fact they may be playing the waiting game during the awaiting situation between Guentzel and the Penguins organization. Dubas has made it clear that he intends to sign Jake Guentzel, but it was reported he has already rejected two offers thrown at him. If they cant resolve a deal in the coming weeks, his name will be on the trade market at a premium price.

In Elliotte Friedman's 32T podcast, he brought up the idea of Jake Guentzel being number one on the Oilers list if made available.

"If Guentzel is available, my opinion is that's their guy, that's the guy they'd like to get"

Guentzel on the Oilers would make a ton of sense, adding prolific goal scoring touch to their top 6 and would be a great partner for the captain, number 97 of the Oilers.

More details to come.
