Are the Oilers scouts as good as we think?

To be honest, relative to where he was picked Lander is turning out quite well. He looks like a surefire NHL'er to me.
I think Pitlick also becomes an everyday NHL'er but it may be in the role of a grinder rather than as a more skilled guy. Still a second round pick only has about a 1 in 6 chance of making the NHL, even if they are high up in round two the odds are still no better than about 1 in 4.
I hope Kleifbom really come through big but playing well in Europe is different than in the NHL.
