I think they should do whatever it takes to get into top 5, even at the expense of Gagner or Hemsky and our 7th overall pick.
7th+Gagner for 4th overall +2nd round pick is probably a very reasonable trade.
I don't think the Oilers are going to trade down to take Gauthier out of all people, his potential seems to be limited. Montreal has Nashville's 2nd round pick.
