I'm happy with all of our top 6 forwards. I think in an ideal world you don't get rid of any of them. But rather you find guys who right now might not be top 6 forwards but are strong 3rd liners who can step into a top 6 role given the opportunity.

If you simply replace a Gagner/Hemsky with someone bigger you are still faced with the problem of not having any depth outside of your top 6 and not having anyone capable of stepping in in the case of injuries (like we are in right now).

The Clarksons/Hortons/Clowe's ect would all be great, but they are all going to command big money which the Oilers wont be able to afford. We need to find these guys before they are going to command the 4-5 million bucks.

Hopefully Hartikainen can turn into one.
