Well, considering the '88 Oilers won the Cup without Gretzky, that there wasn't much roster turnover from the '87 Champs to the '88 Champs (essentially Gretzky and Coffey replaced by Simpson, Carson, Gelinas) and that the '90 Oilers still had 16 "core" players from the '88 championship squad (most of whom were also there in '87, mind you)...

Your opinion that the Oilers' '90 Cup tells us little/nothing about the strength of depth on Gretzky's Oilers is not only a minority opinion, it's also on weak footing, imo.
