Klefbom (top pairing potential) > We'll see, but yes the potential is there.
Musil, Marincin, Gernat, Fedun (top 4 potential) > Musil+Marincin on a second pairing sure, but that doesn't make them stellar additions the way Schultz was. They're building blocks. Not corner stones. Gernat to me is one dimensional...from what I've seen. Fedun? Dude should thank christ if he gets more than 50 NHL games.
Teubert, Plante, Davidson (bottom pairing) < don't hold your breath

It's a decent group. Nothing about it screams stacked though. Pittsburgh is stacked. Phoenix is stacked. Nashville is stacked. Those groups are strong. Edmonton is still basically middle of the pack.
