Spectacular group of players - I just don't see them as well-suited for a division where scoring is limited and physical play and hitting is the norm.
They just need to mature and for their frames to fill out and they'll be fine.
The difference between this group and the Hawks, Pens besides the fact that the Hawks and Pens guys are a level better is that the Oilers kids have had no support whatsoever whereas the Hawks and Pens had a lot more veteran support to shelter them and more team balance in general.

Again, the problem isn't The Big 4. It's the supporting cast and the makeup of the team surrounding them. I don't see any reason why The Big 4 can't be here for the long haul, just surround them with a strong 2 way center to compliment RNH and a physical winger to create balance, neither has to be a big scorer, just meat and potatoes type of guys who will bring 2 way play and physicality to the top 6.
