All kidding aside here's the list of the weights of the players who played on the team last season:

Theo Peckham 246
Ben Eager 236
Mark Fistric 233
Lennart Petrell 215
Darcy Hordichuk 215
Teemu Hartikainen 214
Ryan Whitney 209
Jerred Smithson 209
Magnus Paajarvi 208
Shawn Horcoff 208

Ladislav Smid 207
Corey Potter 206
Mike Brown 205
Nick Schultz 203
Ryan Jones 201
Jeff Petry 200
Sam Gagner 199
Taylor Hall 195
Anton Lander 194
Ryan Smyth 192
Chris VandeVelde 190
Justin Schultz 185
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins 185
Eric Belanger 185
Ales Hemsky 184
Jordan Eberle 184
Nail Yakupov 184
Mark Arcobello 165

The OP does have a point... look at the top 10 heaviest Oilers on that team... EVERY single one of them is off the roster. Only Eager "may" be back.

For a team and GM wanting more meat in the lineup... they certainly have trimmed off a lot of it this summer.

Trade watch is now on for Smid to go as he's the heaviest regular remaining.
