Pickup another veteran defenceman on the outs with a team, but has shown to be good player in past and not to old, for cheap e.g. Keith Ballard




Try to sign physical UFA with top 6 upside. Maybe overpay a bit but might be worth it to add the versatility to lineup.

Ryan Clowe
Nathan Horton


Hall - Hopkins - Eberle
Clowe - Gagner - Hemsky
Hartikainen - Horcoff/Lander - Jones
Eager - Belanger - Brown


Ballard - Weber
Shultz - Shultz
Smid - Petry

Ballard is not being utilized well in Vancouver but is a puck mover and with a rock like Weber maybe you can bring out what he played like in Phoenix and Florida.

Play Horcoff or buy him out and replace with Lander.

Oh and to add icing to the cake you got your top 10 draft prospect from 2013 to groom for future. Who knows maybe even top 5 and ready to contribute right away. Paajarvi could be traded for a very solid 3rd line solid shutdown guy to bolster the overall defensive play of team, Tambellini can figure that one out I can't do all his god dam work!

Pretty sure Oilers make playoffs with that lineup. If not then Oilers are really screwed!
I like how you try and sneak Ballard in there for a second. Not happening buddy.
