The Edmonton Oilers have been a full on disaster early in the 2023-24 season, but if they can find help on their blue line and in net, they may have the chance to turn things around.

According to a recent report however, despite the interest in Linus Ullmark, the Oilers won't be acquiring him, as he reportedly has the Oilers on his 16 team no-trade list.


After another stellar start to the 2023-24 season, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner appears content in his role as part of a star tandem alongside Jeremy Swayman, and even if Boston decide to make a move, it won't be to Edmonton.

The Oilers are in desperate need of goaltending help



This is a major blow for the Oilers, who would have finally had a superstar in net to pair with Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, but now, they'll have to pivot and look towards other options.

With Jordan Binnington, Jacob Markstrom, Dan Vladar or another major star like Juuse Saros potentially available via trade, the Oilers don't lack for options, but it's safe to say they'll be disappointed that they couldn't land Ullmark no matter what price they paid.
