Edmonton Oilers in Buffalo sabers come together for Friday afternoon trading involving former top prospect.

The Edmonton Oilers, still reeling from their Stanley Cup Finals loss, have made another significant move to reshape their roster. After falling short in Game 7, the team has been busy in free agency and has now made a trade to clear some cap space. According to Elliotte Friedman, the Oilers have traded forward Ryan McLeod to the Buffalo Sabres.
In exchange for McLeod and Ty Tullio, the Oilers will receive Matt Savoie, the 9th overall pick in the 2022 draft. This is a significant acquisition for the Oilers, adding to their already talented forward group. McLeod played 81 games last season, scoring 12 goals and 18 assists.
The trade marks a significant shift for the Oilers, who are looking to retool after coming up short in the Stanley Cup Finals. By acquiring Savoie, the team is investing in its future and adding depth to its forward lineup.
The move is a significant win for the Oilers, who are poised to continue competing at a high level. With Savoie joining the fold, the team's forward group is looking more formidable than ever. The trade is a testament to the Oilers' commitment to building a winning roster and putting the pieces in place for a successful future.
