It's a risk for sure, but the Oilers are going to need to take risks at some point to further the process. I really like what i've seen of Myers this season and think that he's on the cusp of getting back to his form of several seasons ago. Those who think otherwise, haven't seen much of him this season or just make a judgment based on +/-.

I'd rather package Gagner in a deal for Myers than for Clifford and Petry being a #1D here means very little. I'm not a fan at all of the player that Petry has turned into and i came into this season thinking that he was a bit underrated but not anymore.
