5 years from now
 
Hall (27) - Nuge (26) - Eberle (29)
Perron (31) - Draisaitl (23) - Yak (25)

Nurse (24) - Schultz (29)
Klefbom (26)
Marincin (27)

Of course one of the 3 LD will likely be moved for a RD.

Getzlaf (34), Perry (34)

Carter (34), Brown (34), Gaborik (37)

Both LA and Anaheim have big name players entering the age where most begin a slow decline. SJ will likely have been turned over to Couture. We become basically what LA is right now.

5 years from now. It seems like a long time to wait, however the fact is that this will be the time that we finally see the Oilers take over. It's not that for the next 4 years they won't compete, in fact it's plausible that the Oil crack a wildcard spot this year. The fear I have is that "fans" are two short sighted to realize what is being built. This team is growing. Developing. The Oilers aren't being built for right now or next year, as evidenced by the lack of a 2nd line center. It's a waiting game right now, and fans need to realize that the next two years could be ones without the Oil cracking the post season. 5 years from now our top 6 enters their prime, so my message is to hold on for another couple of years. Don't panic, our time will come. And please, have some faith in MacT.

Bank on it that the Oilers will not win one Stanley cup with that top 6.The Oilers organization is putting together a top 6 that is missing key ingredients to be successful in the playoffs.

oilersfan11 08-05-2014 05:22 PM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is a major question mark too,as he hasn't proven that he can be a leading center man and he was a weak player to be taken 1st overall.



Taylor Hall is going to truly be the best player for this team down the road.

The Last Dynasty 08-05-2014 05:24 PM

5 years from now:

Taylor Hall 1 year away from taking his talents to Manhattan

oilersfan11 08-05-2014 05:27 PM

If only Boston had agreed to the Oilers deal and we ended up getting Seguin and Hall in 2010.


Too bad.

Musashi 08-05-2014 05:28 PM

It's not as simple as that. The teams in our division will continue to be aided by developing their prospects on competitive teams and in proper roles because of adequate depth.

Aging the current rosters by 5 years does not accurately show where these teams will be in 5 years.

Too bad.

Considering Seguin partied his way out of Boston, it's not much of a stretch to predict that if he went to Edmonton he would have been an absolute trainwreck.

Taylor Hall will be the best player on a future team no doubt, but it's debatable that it will be for the Oilers.

Another few months of Eakins, poorly constructed rosters riddled with holes, and the increasingly noticeable frustration we've been seeing from Hall - all of it has a solid(if not probable) chance of boiling over into a drama that will be all too familiar to Oiler fans.

MoneyGuy 08-05-2014 05:47 PM

We'd better be a cup contender in five years or I'll be very pissed. With Eakins as coach would be nice; there I said it. I can't believe that so many have totally written him off. Sans Lowe would be good, however.

The only way that's going to happen is if the Oilers get Connor McDavid;otherwise,you're going to need to be prepared to be disappointed in 5 years.

Wouldn't be opposed to trading Nuge and our first assuming it's top 10 for McDavid..

CorpseFX 08-05-2014 07:33 PM

i doubt Perron lasts 5 years here

Both LA and Anaheim have some very talented youngsters that you seem to be ignoring. Don't count on a "window" when superior franchises with superior results are stocking their cupboards faster than we are.

This is the very real and present danger. If they don't turn north this year it could all blow up. If Eakins doesn't work and has to be skidded, that will mean that management will be faced with making another crucial decision. If they blow it, and make another huge mistake, I think that will do it. the rebuild will be a failure.

They've used up the 3 mulligans. One more crucial mistake by management and it's all over, folks.

Btw, Yak and another D prospect will not be part of the future.

oilinblood 08-06-2014 01:05 AM

I think prime years for forwards right now...who are in the nhl at 18/19 is around 24.

In five years we wont really have prime hall. I expect him to peak over the next three seasons.

that would be unfortunate, he's been doing very well all things considered. after 5 years begins the collapse.

Playa Hejda 08-06-2014 10:44 AM

Unless I'm mistaken, Hall and Eberle are now the longest serving Oilers with 4 years of experience, it seems rash to be making roster predictions for 5 years from now.

archangel archangel 08-06-2014 11:08 AM

Five years from now the poster's on this board will be talking about trading hall and eberle because they will be one and two years away from ufa status

Beerfish 08-06-2014 12:21 PM

Excellent, we have adjusted the rebuild time again to 5 years from now. The 5 year rebuild that takes 15 years. Wahhhh whoooo!

What ingredients are those?

TowMater14 08-06-2014 12:41 PM

OMG people get the doctor to prescribe some antidepressants in bulk for everyone on this thread collectively. Give me a freakin break. Nuge was a weak draft pick? Really? The guy had a bad year due to injury, most people have seen the talent there. This thread reminds me why I can't pay attention to HF anymore.

archangel archangel 08-06-2014 01:21 PM

here is when the Oilers hit the UFA market (remember we are talking about 5 years in the future July 6th 2014 + 5 years = 2019
Eberle- July 1st 2019
Hall July 1 2020
Hopkins July 1st 2021

Right now, not using a 2 to 3 year bridge contract is looking bad

I always enjoy the "in 5 years..." threads.

I was just lurking abit. Not picking on you, Oil fans. Every team has these threads.

Not nearly as often as we do. Whether apologism or optimism, we do have our Monty Python singers at the ready.
