This is the way I see the Oiler's depth at the forward positions:

LW Center RW

Smyth ???? Hemsky
York ???? Dvorak
Moreau Reasoner Pisani
Torres Horcoff Laraque
Isbister Stoll Salmo
Chimera Sarno

I based this on York and Smyth in their more effective positions and IMO Horcoff not being a first or second line player. I think we need to get Rita and Salmo some NHL playing time, as well as Stoll. The main priority is a first line center. IMO York can play 2nd line center until the log jam starts to break apart. I see Chimera, Horcoff, Isbister, and maybe Laraque as the most likely guys to get moved in a deal. I would hate to see Rita traded before he gets some quality minutes in Edmonton. If I was KLowe, I would concentrate on moving Comrie for a front line center and leave Chimera, Horcoff, and Isbister as principals in a top four d-man trade. Comrie and a 2nd for Marleau? Chimera and Horcoff for Delmore and Brown? Isbister for Vishnevski? Just some ideas....although if all these did happen the Oilers would be giving up approx. 6.2 million in salary(assuming Comrie at 3 million a year) and taking back 6.2 million. Hmmm.....
