This is nothing new, the top 9 has been unbalanced for 5+ years now. Keep Hall/RNH/Ebs/Yak and maybe Gags, move everyone else. A team with some small non-physical players is fine, a team from the first line right down to the 4th line with no variation from that type is not.

The Oilers got the talent they wanted that could only be obtained through the draft, now it's time to get off their a**es and support it with something other than declining, ultra passive players and rookies - something they haven't even really attempted to do yet as they've limited their acquisitions to 4th liners and bottom pairing defensemen.

Aquiring 2nd or 3rd line players with grit was always going to be one of the steps in a long term rebuild, they just haven't even attempted it yet.
