That he's struggling in his 2nd season, as many young players have before him.

Perhaps. A lot will depend on what kinds of trades or signings happen in the next year or two. It also depends on how Nurse develops. He's certainly looking very promising in the OHL this year.

But I do agree that if the Oilers can't solve their defensive issues through those means, they will likely have to offer up one of their wingers for help on the back end.
