Top NCAA Free Agents
 
Anyone know if Oilers are after any of the top players this year such as:

Dan DeKeyser
Antoine Laganiere
Andrej Sustr
Greg Carey
Eric Hartzell - G

ohheyhemsky 03-07-2013 03:05 PM

Dan DeKeyser will be going to Detroit.

Read it somewhere. Don't remember where.

Eric Hartzell please.

Was MacT doing some college scouting?

Heard otherwise since they already have NHL ready prospects. Either way, I'd prefer Sustr :)

im starting to think that college is the way to pluck out your pluggers. since the undrafted players can be 20-23 you can have a pretty good idea where they cap as far as size and strength go.

Jimmi Jenkins 03-07-2013 03:16 PM

Any forwards with size, speed and a bit of skill?

Last I read on Hockey's future is Antoine Laganiere is someone the Oilers are looking at. He's a 6'4 C and has a good skill set

SchultzSquared 03-07-2013 03:20 PM

Christian Folin please... classic late bloomer... big Swede to boot... would look great with Klefbom I would bet... plays like Brodin... so would fit...

I think he was at one of the Oilers camps.

I think they're worth the risk. They're just 22 year old prospects who have been developed by good systems, meaning they haven't been ruined by us yet, so it would make sense for us to sign some.

This guy seems like he could be a good fit, definitely worth a shot. Another guy who's apparently really good is Nate Schmidt.

I would love to see them sign him, seems like he could be one of those "free draft picks" college UFAs that makes an impact.

Considering none of their actual draft pis tend to make an impact

How did he fare against other players will at camp?

YoungGuns 03-07-2013 03:40 PM

Is there a mod around ??

Mr Forever 03-07-2013 03:42 PM

Do any or our college guys have any good teammates that are eligible?

dnicks17 03-07-2013 03:44 PM

I would assume the Oilers have seen Hartzell a few times since he's the goalie on Kellen and Connor Jones' team.

Would be nice to add a goalie like him or Chris Rawlings.

I like the idea of signing college goalies. Since goalies take 6-8 year to develop, plucking them out of college makes it easier for the teams development.

Agreed, the ideal I'd like to see from the Oilers, sign both big forwards and that huge Czech defenseman. Worst case, they are farm hands for a could years.
