from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
The San Jose Sharks need a defenceman to fire rockets from the point, but Edmonton Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini hasn’t had any offers to deal disgruntled blue-liner Sheldon Souray.
San Jose GM Doug Wilson hasn’t asked about Souray, even though the Sharks lost Rob Blake to retirement after last season and Dan Boyle, their best blue-liner, isn’t a shooter.
No other team has inquired about the 34-year-old Souray, either.
“Sheldon has to get healthy,” said Tambellini.
Souray is out with a bad knee. He also broke his hand earlier in the season playing for the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League.
Tambellini’s preference is, “to get an asset, a pick or a player” for Souray in a trade, hopefully before the Feb. 28 NHL trade deadline.
continued and more Oilers talk too…
