With that said I can see Gagner moving to L.A. for Clifford, but the plus coming back would have to make sense cap wise. Maybe someone like Stoll would be coming back (makes sense when you think that the Oilers would need a centerman after Gagner left).
Cap-wise Stoll is the only one that really makes sense. I can't see them moving any of their defensemen right before the playoffs and his salary is the only one that is significant. Mitchell and Greene both have around ~3M+ but I can't see them moving any of their 'rugged shut down' guys, and I wouldn't want either anyways.
