I respectfully do not concur. Either trade deadline value is there for the Oilers or its not. If it's not, there is no urgency to compete and no particular benefit to push players out the door before the next trade window at the draft.

Whatever his complicity or fault for the Oilers current predicament, his pressure to "do something" shouldn't push him into inferior deals for their own sake.
