Edmonton Oilers forward Nail Yakupov asked the team for a trade prior to the NHL's Feb. 29 trade deadline according to a translated story from Russian outlet Sport-Express.

In an interview conducted with Sport-Express while the Oilers were in San Jose last week, Yakupov says the Oilers granted permission to speak with other teams and multiple clubs were interested, but no trade was completed.

I'd take a chance on him, period, but I can't imagine many of the top-end teams are calling. Not when you look at that list. It tells me most of the teams' starving-for-offense teams are the ones calling. Jersey, Carolina, Nashville, etc.

Article must have been edited (or I might have read it in another). Montréal, Winnipeg, New Jersey and Carolina were all listed.

A reunion with Galchenyuk would have been interesting.
