No team has won the Cup the last I-don't-know how many years when their best player was a true winger...especially left wing.
I would prefer to keep Hall out of the three but he may fetch you the most legitimate asset.
You don't need to trade players of the calibre of Hall, Yakupov or Eberle to get a second line center or veteran defencemen. And it is very possible that the Oilers best player will actually be a center.
