Edmonton Oilers Trade Rumors: Flyers Interested in Jordan Eberle

As the Edmonton Oilers continue to struggle for wins this season, the trade rumors will continue to surface.  The latest rumblings has the Philadelphia Flyers having interest in Oilers forward Jordan Eberle, according to Tim Panaccio, the Flyers insider for CSNPhilly.

This is the first rumor that has involved Eberle and as Panaccio states, the Flyers are reportedly in talks with Edmonton about the availability of number 14′s services.

No return players are mentioned on Twitter and naturally the speculation has begun as to what Craig MacTavish could receive for an elite talent like Eberle.  With the Oilers blue line in need of repair, it’s safe to say that anything short of a legitimate number one defenseman would be unacceptable.

Some fans feel that Philadelphia doesn’t have that stud blue liner that the Oilers would want in exchange for the Regina native, while others reactions about the rumor is that Edmonton would be foolish to part ways with the slick hands of Eberle.

Given the Flyers struggles this year and the trades that Paul Holmgren has pulled off in the past, it’s easy to say that no one on their roster is safe from trade. Not to mention that this team isn’t afraid to make a blockbuster deal.  Just look at the trades that sent Mike Richards and Jeff Carter packing.

Stay tuned on this one.

    eberle+hemsky+yakupov+omark+potter for simmonds+schenn+mcginn+2ndrounder/hartnell PLEASE

    • BillHK

      The above would be a bad trade. you would not need to give up eberle and yakupov to get such players. The contracts that you propose that the oilers give away far exceed the value of the contracts that you are suggest that they get in return.

  • BillHK

    The ONLY player on the Flyers roster worth considering trading Eberle for us Giroux. They have no stud D in Philly at the moment. The alternative would be Mason + B Schenn, but with Bryz signed, that’s not on the cards

    • paul dou

      no, giroux is what they have. They need simmonds+schenn+mcginn for eberle, id be happy if phill threw in hartnell or 2nd rounder or brayden schenn instead of mcginn, but that isnt happening
