The 2nd is to sweeten the pot if required.
As good as Jones sounds he isn't a sure bet to be a #1 defense man. Florida would take that deal and run. Yak is someone they can sell tickets too and especially with there d-core set with Gudbranson, Kulikov etc, They need star forwards to play with Huberdeau.
We got some good defense prospects we need defense man who can play now.

If the Oilers sign Streit this summer I hope they can sign a solid defense man like a Rob Scuderi. Maybe Scuds would help J Schultz since he seems to play good with offensive defense man (Letang and Doughty)
