How overhyped and overrated are the Oilers this year?

My problem/frustration lies in the fact that we have been 'wandering in the wilderness' since 1990, albeit with the exception of 2006 and the Marchant goal.
But who among our young core are really elite? I ask in earnest. Where is our Jonathan Toews? Stevie Y? Messier?
I want this rebuild to mean something. I think we've got a few really nice pieces, but its becoming more and more of a concern with me that these young studs are maybe not as advertised.
Of all the players on this team the only guy I can project to be a HOF'er is Schultz.
When Yzerman and Towes and Stamkos etc were in their third NHL season they were dominant players.
And you dont win championships with a collection of above average guys...you always need at least one guy to be the straw the stirs the drink...
my 2 cents...
