One of the big off-season moves that MacTavish made this year was moving out Sam Gagner in exchange for Teddy Purcell. After years of waiting for him to take the next step in his development it never came. The team felt it was time to move on, and maybe he did a little too.

With Benoit Pouliot already hurt, and David Perron on the trade block, what on earth does the Oilers depth chart at wing look like?
