I would only move Eberle, Yak or the pick for a more proven top pairing Dman.
I just feel the potential reward with Myers outweighs the risk of taking on his contract and giving up Gagner+Petry. Buffalo wouldn't make that deal anyway so all this is moot.
That's the truth. But dmen with his tool box and the top pairing potential he has don't get made available often. He's still very young for a dman and has proven he can eat minutes during his time in Buffalo. If you truly believe by watching him that he will round out his game in the defensive zone to compliment his offensive game then that's the type of deal the Oilers got to look at. If he gets back on track then he will no longer be available, even for the Eberles and Yakupovs. That is where the risk lies if you want to get him right now.
