I don't see guys like Acton/Larsen/Hamilton being on the Oilers except in cases of tons of injuries.

Belov is a longshot as well, but could surprise as a bottom pairing guy.

The reality is the Oilers made a lateral move at 3C, upgraded D slightly, and MAYBE the backup goaltender position slightly.

Basically nothing major, so expecting much improvement is awfully optimistic at this point.

Lots of time for things to change still, and maybe the natural progression of players + a new coach, will help a touch. It would be incredibly shocking to see this team near the playoffs next year as it stands.
