That's absoultely brutal for the Oilers. They downgrade on defense when they should be adding defensemen, not trading them away. Then they have to give up a top-six center AND a young checking line forward (both of which provide good depth and carry cheap contracts) for a streaky winger who is a significant injury liability. The 4th certainly doesn't compensate either.
Besides, why would Buffalo want another small center? They already have Briere and Drury.
