Is that a personal bias or is based on not wanting him to be smothered? While the Oilers acquiring another top 5 player would be a little unfair, I think he'd fit in great with the Oilers. Fans always talk of moving Gagner and getting a big, defensively responsible center and with Barkov they get that. They could turn around and turn Gagner+Nick Schultz/Whitney into a better defenseman or simply run three scoring lines.
