I am considering the following players as a transitional players and I hope they will not be back after 2013-14 season.

1. Smyth
2. Petrell
3. Belanger
and maybe Jones and Fistrick too. I really want to see how they can contribute

We need replacements
1. We need to acquire high draft pick again. Barkov is exactly what we need. He can replace Horcoff immediatelly
2. Se need to have bona fide number2 dman to play with J.Schultz.

I only have two problems with what you have to say.
One, how can you suggest Jones at all? he's done nothing but contribute since he's been on the team. he works hard, plays his role perfectly and scores goals.

and the second. you think the oilers need to TANK again and get ANOTHER high draft pick? this is why tambo still has a job.
there is more to running a team than getting a top 3 draft pick every year and waiting for magic to happen. seems like you, many other fans, and Tambo haven't figured it out yet.
the oilers picked first three years in a row, and you feel the need another top pick? there is no way the Oilers should need one if the GM did his job and surrounded the kids with some quality vets. seems like all he's done in three years is pick high and throw crap against the wall to see what sticks.
