Realistically Eberle or none of the Oiler kids are being dealt. The Oilers have suffered a lot to get those players and aren't going to start throwing away core pieces after only 40 some odd games together lol.

And to be fair to those kids, they were in a playoff spot as late as the trade deadline, they had a bad stretch after that which killed them.

The pieces that could be in play are Gagner, Hemsky, EDM 1st ... which is more than ample IMO to land help.

The last time I can remember a top 10 pick being dealt outright was Columbus dealing it to get Jeff Carter and recently Carolina moving theirs to get Jordan Staal. And this draft is likely deeper than those draft years. The Oilers are completely in the right to be asking for a very good player here IMO. If there isn't a great deal, I think you just pick the BPA, any one of Nichushkin, Monahan, Lindholm, Nurse, or Ristolainen would fill a large need.
