No doubt the Oilers dman depth is the achilles heel of the team (the biggest one anyway)... but they are obviously going with internal development of their dman prospects and "eventually" Klefbom/Marincin/Gernat/Musil/Teubert/Fedun etc will fill out the depth... of course that's a few years away.

I think shorter term they need another decent solid vet dman like Sutton who will leave a pretty big hole on the blueline if he does retire.

Smid Petry
Whitney Sutton
Peckham Potter

That group looks a lot better with a guy like Sutton in there than without him.
