In no particular order, here are my top 6 for the next 3-4 years.

5.Hemsky (will be resigned at a cheaper deal, I have a conspiracy here)

I think Hemsky is resigned at a lower deal than now. I firmly believe the Oilers gave him a short 2 year deal with big money because at the current time we have the cap space. They probably explained to him in order to remain competitive in the future we will need to resign the kids. We pay you big bucks now and then resign you to a longer term deal at a smaller dollar amount.

Long term,when the Oilers are ready to compete,they need to rid themselves of Gagner and Hemsky.

Build your top 6 of

Nail Yakupov
Jordan Eberle
Taylor Hall
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
2 bigger players that can lay that big hit and defend our top players.
