Take away Gilbert and it's an absolute trainwreck.
I hadn't heard that Gilbert is staying behind, but if he is, I'd hope that it's because of injury and not a trade.
I agree with you, if the Oilers were to trade for anything but a capable Dman coming back. I can't help but look at L.A. If Gilbert went to L.A. Bernier would be coming back along with maybe Martinez along with him. Just thinking out loud here
