Unfair as that may be, I think a reasonable, patient GM would prefer the greater upside #7 provides.

MacT on the otherhand needs to improve by Sept, and RJ probably does more in that direction than #7.
Johansen for the #7 if Lindholm is available makes the most sense. Yes, Oilers are giving up the chance that Lindholm might one day develop into a top-line C, but that's okay when you're team is stacked with scorers and needs two-way improvement immediately.

Oilers have major problems at forward. Skilled players don't have the puck enough. Can't win puck battles, faceoffs, etc.. Can't shut down anything. Horcoff on the outs. They could actually seriously use Johansen.

Pretty solid proposal bucks_oil. I'd sign off on this as a CBJ fan
They don't know RJ means Umberger, silly.
