Trading the 'big 5' will never net us a fair return.. MacT needs to be creative and bold here. Did we miss out on Seguin and Ryan ? maybeee ... but so did 28 other GMs.

Trading away a core peice will never let you take a big step forward.. it'll be a side step most likely.
The Oilers have one of the most unbalanced rosters in the league. The one strength of their team is skill, everything else is lacking.
Too soft, weak bottom 6, very few 2 way and physical players, a bunch of #3-#6 Dmen, not enough puckmovers on the blueline along with shaky goaltending.
What the Oilers do have is highly skilled wingers, a potential #1C and potential on the blueline with Schultz, Petry and eventually Klefbom. It's all question marks at this point.
