Eberle is the only option that makes sense. He covers Nashville`s needs, is somewhat expendable (compared to the others as we have Yak as a potential top line replacement), is a legitimate top line player, and would fit in with Nashville`s roster.

In my proposal, I added Gagner, a top six center who can fill in on the top line in the right scenario, and beside Eberle has been good for him in the past, and J. Schultz, our most valued defender, as a replacement in the top 4 on Nashville, who would fit in well beside a defensive specialist like Kevin Klein.

It just makes sense to me to do a deal like this. Valuable pieces for Nashville, that could be considered expendable by the Oilers if it filled their biggest need.
I think there would have to be one more piece added because I think j. Schultz is a UFA at years end so we'd need something incase he doesn't re-sign.

But overall I like the deal.
