Even if its not we need to find out if it is before making a move.
Even if Schultz/Yakupov do nothing, I think the Oilers would make the playoffs if Whitney returned to that form.

However, based upon what people have said regarding his injuries, it doesn't look like that will ever happen. It seems like it's permanent.
