If Minnesota's prospects develop like we all project them too, that team will be a force. Especially considering Parise, Suter and Koivu will be there along with them.

For the sake of comparison in the future;

Yakupov > Granlund
Schultz > Dumba
Klefbom = Brodin
Hartikainen < Coyle
Lander = Larsson

Nugent-Hopkins > Koivu
Eberle = Parise

Then the Wild have Suter, we have Hall. Can't exactly compare them.

I just think the Oilers core is far more of a sure thing, and I don't exactly agree with the depth statements being thrown around.
I absolutely hate this. Well, we are talking about teams, better compare individual players. Completely asinine. Yea, players are the make up of the team. But its how they are used. Obviously, you guys aren't using them correctly if you have so many top picks in a row. And obviously, we aren't much better. But we've been, a little, better. But its no sense in comparing these players when its team game. How often are you going to see Schultz pull and end to end rush and come up to face Dumba as the only defender left?

If you can' agree that the Wild has more depth than the Oilers, then you are a homer. At least a good portion of the Oiler fans in this thread realize it.

Dont count your chickens son.
How can they be a prospect if they are proven producers in the nhl?

Find your reasoning son.
