The Oilers don't need to move out young d-men for wingers. That would be the worst move we could make. We certainly do need a guy like Malone, but there are four d-men in the minors that, if I were the Oil, I would not trade unless it was in a package for a top pair d-man. Klefbom, Marincin, Gernat and Musil are all really solid prospects, and as weak as our NHL defense core is, in time these kids could be key parts to one of the best cores in the league if they are kept together.
