Give your head a shake. The "untouchable" Taylor Hall has one whopping more goal than Eberle this season.
There's nothing special about a forward group of Hall + RNH + Yakupov. That's one freaking line and then what? Gagner? Who's that supposed to scare? The Canucks? Penguins? Blackhawks?
If the Flames land MacKinnon and McDavid in their rebuild, they would probably end up being better in half the time.
The Oilers need to be patient with the talent they have, making panic moves is the worst thing you can do.
I don't see it as a panic move will a top 6 of:
Hall; RNH; Eberle
PRV; Gagner; Yak
Will that top 6 be able to beat teams like LA, STL, or CHI
Even if you replace PRV it won't help.
