If you can get a Sean Couturier alone that solves most of the problems the Oilers have upfront honestly. Add in a role player like Clutterbuck from NYI or something and that significantly changes the forward mix.
Oilers have a lot of problems up front. Need balance throughout the line up. 2 of Eberle, Yakupov, and Hemsky need to go. We need a center to shelter RNH or trade him. We need wingers that can win board battles. On top of that how else would we get a top pairing dman and change the culture without moving Hall or Eberle+ the 1st? If we want to keep RNH then one of those other players/packages will need to be moved.
