It's obvious though.
What do the Oilers lack?
Sure the defense could be better. Goaltending wasn't the problem tonight but they could use an upgrade.
Everyone in the league knows that the Oilers have very talented young stars.
Besides a few more years to mature for the forwards, an upgrade on goaltending and a #1D, I don't see what else the Oilers need.
Nurse/Klefbom could be top pairing D, you can easily trade one of the forwards for a top pairing D and as the rest of them get older, they will get better.
I really think Christian Ehrhoff is a player the Oilers should target. Top pairing defenseman, wouldn't cost any of the young players you guys have and comes with a very cheap salary.
Ehrhoff is a smarter Justin Schultz (right now).
