We need to build back-end out. If we're going to trade some kids then get a goalie first and, if necessary, package two of them for a #1 D. We can worry about our size up front later.
I will say its hard to judge the goalie talent when you don't have a single forward in the top 6 that can play a lick of defense. Every poster thinks that improving our defensive pairings will make the team better defensively but defense is a 5 man job and really the oilers top 6 are the worst defensive group of forwards of any top 6 in the league and its not even close at this point.
