The Oilers biggest weakness is defense BECAUSE of drafting the kids they have in the last few years, if you go back and reverse Hall for Larsson or Murray the landscape changes but not necessarily for the better.

This thread will be predictable, to get a top d-man you need to trade one of the big 4. People will argue that's overpayment, can get one for a lesser package, etc., and by the end of it it will turn into a "you need to learn how to draft because you keep passing on D".

For me personally, I have no idea what type of d-man we could get for a package like Gagner, Paajarvi, and a 2nd, but I am fairly certain they won't be trading any of Ebs, Hall, RNH, Yak, or Schultz, so I guess they will likely take the best defenseman they can get and try to improve.

The good thing is this defense can be improved with any legit #2-3 guy because we simply have not been very good over the last few years.
