They downgrade significantly on defense which is already a weakness of theirs and they don't shed much salary. Edit: I guess they do with Meszaros thrown in there but still....And the Oilers don't have the space to take on those 2 contracts.
If anything, i see them dealing one of their bottom 6 forwards for a draft pick or prospect. Would love to get Talbot here somehow, i think he would fill a bigger need than Coburn at this point anyway.
It's not a perfect fit, but Meszaros and Coburn are both better then Schultz and Potter, so generally improving the depth is never a bad thing, but I agree Talbot would be a main target, the problem is he actually has an affordable contract.
