No Interest In Souray

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…

So his preference is to get one of the three possible things you can get when trading a player?
