Hire a competent GM, trade Gagner + Hemsky (if you haven't done this already) for a big body forward + top 4 d-man.
You readily recognize that the maturity of the lineup is one of its major weaknesses but then in the next post you want to move Hemsky and Gagner for other vets??

The Oilers will never succeed until they stop granting roster space to rookies and sophmores, year after year.

The day we fire up the old interweb for a season opener and see that the Oilers aren't starting any players with under 100 games experience will be the day we can expect dramatic improvement.

Gagner, Smid and Hemsky need to be extended and the Oiler need to focus on moving their picks and prospects for availble NHLers that can help now
