Oilers would need Deslauriers to pair a very young duo with Lehtonen as Roloson's UFA and unsure if the Oilers would have the salary to pickup anything better then Deslauriers. Plus, not sure Atlanta would even be looking for a goalie anyhow. Maybe something more like this;
3 of Nilsson/Schremp/Brule/Potulny/Stone/Reddox/Wild/Plante/2nd
(well, maybe not a combo including 3 of the first 4 but any other combo would be fine)
If it involved Nilsson, Brule, Potuly, Reddox and Wild I'd be cool with it. Lehtonen isn't in high demand. He gets injured too much. Reasoner will be UFA next year so he doesn't have much trade value.
Nilson + one of Brule/Potulny/Wild should do if Atlanta just wants to pick up some young 3rd-4th line players.
