Not trying to be negative here but when I saw that Calgary has Glencross penciled in as their 1st or 2nd LW it got me thinking that's exactly who the Oilers should have had in that spot. Flip Yak back to the right side and trade Hemsky to fill another hole. Again, not trying to fight an old battle here but I bet that alone would be enough to silence a lot of the critics regarding the lack of sandpaper in the top 6.
