Player Weights: Oilers vs. the Division

Looking at the guys on the Oilers roster they're pretty light compared to the rest of the division they're moving into. If you exclude Ben Eager (236 lbs.) who may or may not be on the roster the heaviest skater is Jesse Joensuu at 209 lbs. The average NHL weight last year was 203.5 lbs. On the current roster there are only five skaters over that weight, six if you include Klefbom.

Below I will list the other teams in the division and the number of skaters they have who are heavier than Jesse Joensuu at 209 lbs, and how many players are heavier than the NHL average weight of 203.5 lbs. Also l provided links to team rosters.

San Jose: 10 players > 209 lbs; 14 players > 203.5 lbs.

Calgary: 6 > 209 lbs; 6 > 203.5 lbs.

Edmonton 0 > 209lbs; 5 or 6 > 203.5

I think it's fair to say the Oilers need help in the size department.
