How will the Edmonton Oilers roster look when the trade deadline passes at 1pm mountain time Wednesday afternoon?
The Oilers have already made a move, sending defenceman Brandon Davidson to Montreal for centre David Desharnais.
“It’s really important that he has playoff experience and success in the playoffs,” general manager Peter Chiarelli said of Desharnais shortly after the trade was announced Monday night.
630 CHED will have trade deadline coverage starting at 11am, or earlier if there are significant moves. Bob Stauffer and Reid Wilkins will be live at Rogers Place where Chiarelli and the Oilers brain trust will be stationed.
