The Oilers have already been active on Thursday, kicking off the league's lift on the trade freeze by moving Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders in a direct swap for fellow forward Ryan Strome. Over the course of his career, Eberle has been as consistent as goal scorers come, putting up 20 goals in all but two of his seven seasons - he narrowly missed the mark in his rookie campaign and in the lockout-shortened season - and he's a near lock to put up at least 50 points.
The Oilers selected Eberle with the No. 22 pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
To make this deal, Islanders general manager Garth Snow had to first clear cap space to fit Eberle in, while also finding a way to keep Vegas from selecting Strome, a 2011 first-round pick, in Wednesday's expansion draft.
He has 45 goals and 81 assists in 258 career games with the Isles.
In New York, he is expected to join the top line alongside Tavares, the Islanders' captain, and one of the best players in the game.

Otto Warmbier , a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, was released after 17 months of detention in the communist nation. Hours before Otto was scheduled to land, there was a row of reporters standing outside the airport, lined up facing the runway.
They will be reunited with the Islanders, and potentially on the same line, in order to give Tavares a scoring winger. Eberle has shown prowess with the extra man over his career, and in the past four seasons alone has potted 24 goals and 66 points on the power play. After a 50-point season in his second year in NY (17 goals, 33 assists), he only managed 28 and 30 points in the two seasons since.
Going the other way was 23-year-old Ryan Strome, a winger who entered the league with great promise and potential but has never been able to fulfill it in NY.
The full schedule for the next season of Edmonton Oilers hockey has been released and the players are going to have to wait a bit to see the NHL's newest team.
This is a solid deal that works out huge for both teams, Edmonton needs more depth down the middle while the Islanders need more help on the wings.
Eberle is entering the fifth year of a six-year, US$36-million contract. NY has been looking to add a big name presence up front for a while, as they're hoping to make big strides over the coming year to maximize their chances of keeping star captain John Tavares, who is entering the final year of his current deal.
