So while Neal>Gilbert, trading their best defenseman for another LW doesn't really sound like the kind of move the Oilers would be interested in.
If Neal was offered for Gilbert I think the Oilers would have to do it anyway regardless of LW depth. Then they can flip one of their LWers for someone with a much more palatable contract than Gilbert.
