If we really want to go with a youth movement that makes some sense, I would think Zeus and maybe one more role player could go, for a top 4 defenseman and pick/prospect. I wanted to send Zeus, Radivojevic, and a pick to Edmonton for Jason Smith and Raffi Torres. We could have lines something like this:

Gagne-Carter-Roenick
Torres-Richards-Knuble
Kapanen-Primeau-Sharp
Fedoruk-Umberger-Stevenson
Somik, Brashear

Johnsson-Smith
Markov-Pitkanen
Desjardins-Seidenberg
Timander

Maybe Brashear could be dealt for a #5-6 defenseman at some point? We may have to sign one top 6 defenseman depending on Desjardins' situation. I could get behind that lineup way more than one with Sharp on the first line. Some Oilers fans seemed to think that was about the right trade value, some didn't. But a deal of that nature for a defenseman of Smith's abilities is probably a good idea. If we can get a top 4 defenseman and a decent LW at the same time, even better. Ideas?
