Oilers have way more forward depth. After Tavares, the next 5 best forwards are Hall, RNH, Eberle, Hemsky and Yakupov. On defense, I think Justin Schultz is on another level and they have better depth with Smid, Petry, Marincin and Klefbom coming up. Goaltending, Dubnyk is a very good young goalie who tore it up after the new year. Coaching and management along with financial flexibility goes to the Oilers as well.

Brooklyn may attract some FAs though, so who knows. But as of now, I take Oilers AINEC. The Islanders development of talent outside of Tavares is very alarming when they hog up a lot of draft picks. Also think center depth is in favor of the Isles, which may turn the whole argument around.
