Could see the Oilers wanting to move Mark Fayne if they can find a fit, term and money left so may be tough, but they can retain $ if needed

On the New York Islanders …
Isles are looking, but not interested in trading high picks or prospects for rentals. Parenteau seems more of a long-shot at this stage.

On the Ottawa Senators ….
Sens don’t have Wiercioch in their future. Wouldn’t qualify him at 2.7 million. Owe 700k US for rest of the year. Might as well get a pick.
