At the deadline, the Oilers should be moving Whitney, Jones and Khabibulin.

Summer buy-outs of Eager and Belanger.

Sign Smid - for reasonable dollars.

Klefbom joins the top 6.

Need to find: 4th line Center with grit and size, 2nd line LWer with grit and size (good luck), 3rd line winger with grit and size, top 3 defenseman who can move the puck, back-up goaltender.

The only way to get the top line defenseman will be via trade. Virtually nothing on the UFA front. Smid actually would be smart (financially) to go to July 5 and test the market. Jan Hejda got 3.25M a couple of seasons ago. Smid might easily get 4M in this market.

The rebuild continues.
