Exactly, and well put.
FWIW, the guys in Oiler rumors are Hemsky, Gagner, Gilbert, Omark, Cogliano and Brule.
I'd guess if the Oilers/Rags had any shot at a deal, it'd involve something around major pieces of Gagner and Dubinsky or Omark/Cogliano and Callahan.... Oilers would be adding in both situations, I'd imagine, with the Rangers incentives coming from cap space.
