I can't imagine why you think that. The only reason the Oilers will look better next year is based solely around how terrible some other teams are going to be. Putting a 'big' free agent signing aside, this team is not an improvement over last year's team.

-Sophomore Slumps
-Still weak on D
-Faceoff and PK needs probably won't be addressed unless we sign Laich or something
-Lack of TOUGHNESS
-1st overall won't make an impact, will play in juniors.
