For or against, I would not get too worked up over this speculation. Consider the source - Bucky Gleason. I would be surprised if anyone in a position to know anything with the Sabres ever talks to Bucky. He is not credible in my opinion. From Edmonton's standpoint, why would they trade anything of value for two players who are highly unlikely to resign with them after this season. It is not like this puts them in the chase for the cup this year. Does not even make sense.
because right now they are desperate for an upgrade at goaltending and feel they could be a playoff team with the upgrade. They need to start winning or else their fan base is going to riot
Yak is part of a surplus of young talented forwards that can be expendable to get back a missing piece, and he seems to have fallen out of favour with the current coach.
the Oilers best trade chips right now are their young forwards and its what every team is going to ask for from them. Miller is the best and most proven goaltender available that would provide them with a huge boost/upgrade, so if your going to have to give up something of value to upgrade that spot, Yak would be that piece.
