The Oilers haven't really sent any highly regarded draft picks there, all their top young talent has gone straight to the NHL. Klefbom is first 1st round pick of the Oilers to play for the Oilers farm team before the big club since Alex Plante...
I mean, the Barons have only been around for 3 seasons, before that it was a mess of shared farm teams, loans and Springfield. I think the they've seen good progress with Arco, Fedun, Marincin etc, and even Lander and Hartikainen. Time will tell, but frankly the situation with the Oilersmmakes it pretty difficult for a callup to succeed at all.
