The Chicago Blackhawks are dealing with a bunch of injuries, two of them season ending. 

However Brandon Saad who's currently on IR, will be back and might get moved out of Chicago when he does. 

NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reports that teams were making a push for Saad before he went on IR and that interest will rise back up again when he returns. 

David Staples of the Edmonton Journal reports that the Oilers are one of those teams. 

Staples adds that the cost for the Oilers to land Saad would like be a pick somewhere in the first three rounds, however the Oilers would need the Hawks to take on at least a little bit of salary. 

Instead of taking on a roster player, the Blackhawks would likely prefer to retain some of Saad's salary if a deal were to happen. 

Would you be ok with Bowman trading Saad before the deadline?
