There is no help on the way for the right wing. Pitlick doesn't look like he'll make it, and after that we have to wait for college kids to work their way up the ranks.
Bottom sixers don't cost that much to aquire, the Oilers just never make an effort to aquire any. More concerned with the immediate and near future balance of the top 6 than the long term right wing depth.

You are worrying about an issue that effects more than just the RW position anyways, depth throughout the organization at all position is fairly poor.
