I'll rank the percentage chance of our CHL guys to make an NHL roster:

Darnell Nurse- 100%- There is no doubt he plays in the NHL.
Mitch Moroz- 95%- I have great confidence he'll be in the show as a 3rd or 4th liner.
Jujhar Khaira- 75%- Great size and complete game shutdown third liner IMO.
Marco Roy- 50%- Good tools, undersized, injury issues.
Greg Chase- 50%- Has the makings of a good role player.
Jackson Houck- 30%- I really like Houck he has size and grit, bottom sixer.
Kyle Platzer- 15%- My pick as a big dark hoarse, NHL release and a hard worker. Still a longshot.
Ben Betker- 10%- Big and mean skating not as bad as I initially thought but lacks hockey sense.

I'll add that this is the happiest I've been with our prospect pool in some time, lots of potentially great bottom six role players and stud defencemen.

Oilers fans are like a wounded dog when it comes to getting exited about prospects but things are shaping up nicely in the pipeline IMO.
