Ryan Whitney trade talk
By Victoria Matiash
The Edmonton Oilers aren't eager to pull the trigger on a Ryan Whitney-trade. Not this week, anyway.
According to the Edmonton Journal, general manager Steve Tambellini is instead hoping a better version of Whitney re-emerges in the very near future.
TSN's Darren Dreger also recently reported that Tambellini is "not actively trying to move" the veteran defenseman.
That stance could easily change closer to the trade deadline -- especially if the Oilers are out of playoff contention. But, for now, the Edmonton club appears willing to be patient.
Whitney has been a healthy scratch of late.
