If you can fight, the Oilers may want you

Sep 11, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

The Edmonton Oilers are in the market for a heavyweight, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, who tweets that both general manager Craig MacTavish and new head coach Dallas Eakins believe the team should have an enforcer.

The Oilers fought a league-low 13 times last season, according to hockeyfights.com. (The Leafs led the NHL, with 44 scraps.)

As for which enforcer may fit Edmonton’s needs, well, to be perfectly honest we’re struggling to come up with a prominent fighter who’s still looking for a contract. Maybe we’re missing an obvious one?

Oh well, let’s just watch this instead.

    He’s not an enforcer really, but maybe they can take Engelland off of Pittsburgh’s hands. He’ll fight anyone. Pens are over the cap anyway and they still need to figure out how to get Dumoulin some minutes this year.

    Please take Cam Janssen off the Devils’ hands.

      I was about to say maybe Cam janssen for a 2nd or 3rd rounder.

        Not a fair trade nj666. Maybe ask for Taylor hall and Darnell Nurse to equal it out a little.

    Please take Tootoo, He will drop them with anyone.

    Call Ottawa for the Kassassin, but you have to take Jim O’Brien as well, deal breaker.
