The forwards, on the other hand, it seems we have less to be excited about. After Lander and Hartikainen, there's not much else coming that addresses a need on the big club. And with Harti, it's clear he has a lot to work on before he starts to excel in the NHL.
As far as Rajala or Arcobello go, great stories (especially Rajala) but they're more of the same small-type players that have failed the Oilers in the fast. Not writing them off, but they're probably nothing more than trading chips or part of a core on future elite AHL teams.
As for the goalies - nothing to see here.
What do the Oil need? Most notably it's D, so of course that's promising.
Bottom 6 you have Lander and Hartikainen (hopefully). Big Pitlick fan, but he is starting to really seem inept offensively. Wouldn't give up on Rajala, because as you say at the very least he could be a piece to attract something of more need.
Danis is likely gone, I think he goes to Switzerland or Sweden. So we should get a good, long look at Roy at this level next season should that happen.
