I ask, because if he does have 2nd line upside, then he might be a good fit for the Oilers going forward. Thoughts? What would it take to get him?

He doesn't really use his line mates all that well.

His game has a high lowest level imo. when he plays bad, he is energy on the 4th line and solid d-game. when he's on fire, he lives up to his junior nickname "danger". Boy can he dazzle opponents when he's on top

Perhaps they aren't counting his 50 game seasons as full seasons....he's still a 24 point player, albeit he did have 22 last year in a half year.

Except he isn't a good center (or at least right now he isn't), and he is quite meh at wing too.

That's unfortunate. Pass then, we could use his size, but we already have enough guys who don't use their linemates well. We need the exact opposite in my opinion.

Yea, he's a puck hog, whenever he has the puck. Might be overblowing it, but, it seems like he looks straight down at the puck and forgets he has 4 other teammates on the ice.
His value is plummeting with PH giving him no ice time, wouldn't shock me if he was a throw-in in a upcoming trade.

Still wouldn't mind the Oilers bringing him in. At this point with his value being somewhat low, I'd offer a prospect like David Musil + a pick (4th maybe 3rd) Plug him in on the 3/4th line. He has played almost 300 games in the league and a change of scenery might be the kick start he needs.
