I think we need to stop worrying about which of our 4th liners are there to make up our 4th line. This team isn't winning and losing games on the strength (or lack thereof) of their 4th line and the 5-9 minutes they're on the ice.

If we want to see real improvements and tangible results, focus needs to be put a little higher up in the batting order.

Rapid development from Yakupov, Gordon's return, the presence of an actual top pairing defenseman, someone between the pipes who can make the odd save from time to time...those are the kinds of things this team needs. Acton over Lander, or Lander over Acton does nothing to change the fortunes of the Oilers.
