Rumor has it that the Edmonton Oilers have scouted Pavel Buchnevich as another potential forward. Edmonton has needed positional depth here for the longest time possible. Adding the Blues star would make the Oilers instant Stanley Cup contenders.

There's also talks of Buchnevich potentially going back to New York as a Ranger. The 28-year-old was drafted by the New York Rangers in the third round of the 2013 NHL Draft. A homecoming of sorts would make for a full-circle moment for the forward.
