The Edmonton Oilers will be sellers as the Feb. 29 trade deadline approaches, Pierre LeBrun said Thursday on TSN's "Insider Trading" segment.

LeBrun suggests the club's likely to deal forward Teddy Purcell, who will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year.

He added that many teams feel they can "rediscover" defenseman Justin Schultz, who will become a restricted free agent at season's end.

The Oilers have dropped to last place in the Western Conference and are tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs for the worst record in the league.
