Laddy Smid would be fantastic as a Wing, but like mentioned above, I agree that the Oilers and Wings just don't seem to be great partners at this time. I think that Whitney can be a solid if not better than average contributor, but the Oilers will want to hold onto him until Schultz completely usurps him and the Wings won't offer up anything that will please the Oilers enough to let him loose. The Wings core players are too valuable to their team and their 'non-core' players are not worth enough to appease the Oilers. Besides, the Wings have a glut of forwards, plus 7 D at the moment given Smith being integrated into the top 6 which is all but assured.
