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.
The defensive depth is sprouting, but it'll still be a few years until Marincin, Davidson or Fedun can hold their own in the NHL (if ever!). They might project to jump into the Oiler line up when the kids really start to hit their stride, so they're timeline isn't such a bad thing.
In my opinion, goalie is where the Oilers are in big trouble. Khabby and Danis likely both gone, and no one else coming.
With no offence in sight, Pitlick looks like a career AHLer right now. Too bad.
