Yep, when they took Taylor Hall 1st overall in 2010, Oilers already had Cogliano, Brule, VandeVelde, Hartikainen, Paajarvi, Lander who all looked like quality depth players. Then they added Pitlick, Hamilton and Martindale.
Fast forward 3 years. Cogliano, Brule and Paajarvi are no longer part of the team. Hartikainen may never play a game in NA, Pitlick, Hamilton and Martindale all look like busts, with Lander's potential being limited.
