While the Oilers have yet to acquire a defenseman that has earned the right to a disgusting amount of money (Bouwmeester, Weber, Phaneuf, Pronger....), their top-6 right now has the potential to get them into the postseason if all goes well.

There are definitely numerous question marks there and for someone who doesn't watch 82 Oiler games a season, it's pretty easy to write them off.

Smid - Petry
Whitney - J Schultz
Fistric - N Schultz


While, on paper, that's not Top 10 (or even Top 20), there is a massive potential for growth in that Top 6. A bounce back year from Whitney, a solid year of growth from Petry and an expected breakout from Justin Schultz could change everyone's view of the Oilers' defense.

As for Fistric? We expect him to crush people.

They'll do fine.
