The Oilers absolutely should be looking to trade up to the 4th for a shot at Barkov. Size, skill, shoulder injury - he's everything the Oilers could dream about in a center to help platoon the middle of the ice for the next decade with RNH.
Oilers have 2 second round draft picks, which is typically what 3 - 5 slot trade-ups cost in drafts. Time to play up the "deep draft" nonsense everyone parrots to hype drafts every year, and get a potential star center that really wasn't an option with the first overalls the last 3 years.
