I think Edmonton is aiming for a more Vancouver style of defense (An entire top 6 of top 4 guys) rather than having a bona fide number 1 and 2.

Adding two guys makes the Oilers defence no longer look so bad. While not world beaters, they're no where near as bad as they have been in the past. No more Barker, Potter, Sutton, or Peckham taking regular shifts makes the defence infinitely better.

Smid - Petry
Martin - N Schultz
Whitney - Methot
Sutton

A few guys I hope the Oilers target in UFA as well are

Sarich
Kubina
Allen
and obviously Justin Schultz

Anyways my question to you guys is what would Edmonton have to give up to acquire Martin, Hjalmarsson and/or Methot?

Please don't include any of the big 4, or Klefbom, or any of Smid, Schultz, Petry. Anyone else is pretty much fair game.
Here come the Gagne and MPS proposals.
