As stated by the leafs brass, they will trade young players from a position of strength for other young players of equal ability for a position of weakness....like the Schenn/JVR deal.
Nonis dealt a few older players for picks in Lombardi/Brown. With how weak the Oilers are on the blueline and having lots of cap space I could see them offering a pick for Liles who would fill the LD PP role that Whitney occupised. The Oilers wouldn't have to give up a lot and he could be used in a veteran mentor type role as well as allow the Oilers time to develop their D prospect instead of rushing them into hard NHL minutes before their ready.

Liles is a better option to fill that LD PP role then any available free agent.
