I think that there has to be a move done with one of the big 4 to make room for grit and toughness in the top 6. There just isn't a market out there for Hemsky or Gagner as the center piece for the types of players the oil need. The fact that they look to be getting another top end draft pick will make it easier to swallow a move of one of the big 4 as well. The fact that Eberle is the best of the big four right now is a why you move him. You can't move RNH and Hall is the only left winger, so it comes down to either Yakupov who is still an unknown quantity or Eberle. Gagner is almost an automatic to be included on a deal as well as he is producing and his spot on the 2nd line needs to be filled by a big physical center who can win a face off. This is one of those cases where you have to give to get.
