Whitney has very little value because of his play, recent injury history, and current salary. The Oilers could trade him for a minimal return but they need at least one vet on each pairing IMO. Ideally, if he gets his game back the Oilers will be rolling with -
Whitney-Smid
N.Schultz-Petry
J.Schultz-Sutton

Maybe "ideally" isn't the best word to describe the Oilers D situation
Whitney will most likely be traded at the TD, with Marincin and Klefbom knocking at the door it would be hard to keep him. If returns back to form, he'll want the long term contract, which the Oilers cannot afford to give, due to the prospects coming up.
