As for Jonas Hiller - if Oilers brass isn't 100% re: Dubnyk in the off-season it may be worth an attempt at acquiring this guy. Might cost us a fair big (Dubnyk+Gagner for Hiller+) - but he may be the only one available (Schneider?) come the off-season.

Turn the cap hit into 5.5-6.0M and let him play with RNH. He brings a similar game to Marian Hossa, with great 2-way play and brilliant shooting and passing ability.

Eberle for Wheeler+
Surely you can't be serious.

Your ideas are: trade Dubnyk & Gagner for Hiller, bring in Semin for 7 years (because he's basically hossa) and trade Eberle for Wheeler.
