I'm really starting to get sick of Sam Gagner, I don't understand why they pay him 4+ million to be ineffective. I'm going to go ahead and list the players the should get rid of before next season. Unfortunately I think that the Oilers will have to deal one of Eberle or Yakupov to fix the teams other needs, if I had a choice I would move yakupov bcuz Eberle is best friends with Taylor Hall and roommates and I wouldn't mess with those two. Players they should trade: Sam Gagner, Nail Yakupov, Ryan Smyth, Ilya Bryzgalov, Ales Hemsky and Nick Schultz,
Don't resign Belov, Larson, or Potter.
Players that they should go after: Dmen - Ehrhoff, Orpik as UFA, Edler, Girardi, They should look into a couple of those dmen. Forwards - JVR, Simmonds, Kreider, Winnik, Byfuglien....
All of these players would benefit the Oilers, of course they would have to use their first round pick to help acquire some of these players but it's worth it.
Let me know your thoughts below..
