2003 should have been a gold mind
JFJ 166
Stortini 257
Brodziuk 467
troy brodie 107 games played

so the oilers have produced only 6 players in ten years who were not drafted in the first round and only Brodziuk is any good
Some of those guys came from an era where the Oilers never had a farm team.
They've cleary saw the problems with the prospects playing in Wilkes barre-Scraton / Springfield. Which is why a few years back they basically started their own franchise (with Prodigal Hockey) from the ground up in OKC. I'm sure there has been a ton of changes, and 3 years in they've built a very good AHL team. Which is impressive in it's own rights, even if it may not benefit the Oiler lineup. I just don't think we can use those old examples since we know the majority of the people "in the system" helping bring these players along aren't even around anymore.
