Somewhat. I can't speak for the Oilers, but as an Isles fan there are several guys on the team who are relatively young that I expect to be a part of the team going forward. Guys like Moulson, Nielsen, Bailey, Okposo, Grabner, Hamonic, MacDonald. While I think Streit will re-sign, I wouldn't include him in this. By the time the Islanders are competitive again he'll probably be 38 years old. Visnovsky and Nabokov will also probably be gone.

Granted, if this were a "which team has better players that are 22 and under" the Oilers would win. If this is about each team's future peak, I expect the guys I mentioned to be a part of it, making things a lot closer IMO.
