This team would be stacked!! And if their able to trade Ales Hemsky this year for a first rounder in 2014, and get Alex Nedeljkovic. He reminds me a bit of Cory Schneider, and at his peak, Jonathan Quick. He's just 6'0, but he's very agile, quick and flexible. Also, he will be someone to push for the starters job from Devon Dubnyk. Here's what the Oilers lineup could be like in two years.
Hall - Nugent-Hopkins - Eberle
Perron - Gagner - Yakapov
Smyth - Gordon - Joensuu
Gazdic - Lander - Brown
Ekblad - J. Schultz
Nurse - Klefbom
Gernat - Marancin
Looks like a stacked team, and get this, their defense corps would all be over 6'2. That's huge!! Teams would not want to face Edmonton's huge defense. Not to mention their offense, and they'll have a great goalie.
It typically takes more than two years for a d-prospect to become top-pairing and for a g-prospect to become a starting goalie.
And Smyth can barely skate as it is, let alone in two years.
