a) use periods and breaks. it makes your post more readable.

b) if a prospect isn't NHL ready for a couple of years, then they're not in the discussion for the NHL this/next year.

The reality is that whoever is the 5th or even 6th defenseman on the Oilers roster has to be decent because as demonstrated over the last several seasons, injuries will take its toll and todays 5th defenseman will play a huge number of games in the top 4.
