I really like the signings that the Oilers/Barons have made over the last week. The team is pretty much full now (I think) and is looking like an excellent AHL club. Plenty of NHL caliber prospects and a bunch of top quality but not ancient AHL guys.

I think it will look something like this on opening night:

Ryan Hamilton / Mark Arcobelllo / Toni Rajala
Derek Nesbitt / Andrew Miller / Matt Ford
Wil Acton / CJ Stretch / Ben Eager
Curtis Hamilton / Ryan Martindale / Tyler Pitlick
Eric Lizon

Martin Marincin / Larsen or Potter
Taylor Fedun / Brad Hunt
Brandon Davidson / Oscar Klefbom
Lee Moffie


Still not sure who the 14th+ forwards will be, suspect they'll sign a few bodies as I doubt they'll want any of the rookies as healthy scratches.

Those top 3 lines look really good to me. The 4th line would have been a mess the last two years but it at least has some potential. Assuming we get one NHL guy (Larsen or Potter?), Fedun is back, and Klefbom is competent the defense looks decent. I'd like to see one more veteran added back there but they'll probably wait until injuries/callups/whatever happen during the season.
