The problem with last year's team wasn't the kids (with the exception of J. Schultz and Yak being atrocious defensively, which was a problem). They were a dominant line, plus Yak who scored a bunch of points in garbage time at the end of the season. Them being that small percentage
dominant won't get the team anywhere of note.
Thought experiment: if every "kid" (Eberle, RNH, Yak, Hall, Schultz) on the team manages to have a better season (a massively unlikely thing), how many more points do the Oilers have at the end of the year?
