I should have done a poll, but it seems Smid would win. Petry would be 2nd then Gags in third. Some die hard Hemmer fans still out there and some fans of Duby. Funny no one mentioned him that much. I, like many other, still just don't see him as a true number 1.
I'm honestly not a huge fan of Dubnyk... but to say he's not a very important part of the team would be false. Khabi is done... and Bunz/Roy are nowhere near ready so Dubby becomes really the only option in net. I guess Danis is a decent backup plan if it comes to that, but the Oilers REALLY need Dubnyk to step up and prove he can be a full time starter.
That's why I say he's top 10 in importance to the team. Obviously a solid starter can steal games for you and give the forwards and dmen confidence to take chances up the ice. Dubnyk doesn't have that level in his game yet but the Oilers NEED a solid goalie back there to deliver that and we'll see if Dubnyk can up his level of play and start 50+ games if/when there is ever another NHL season.
Hemsky (our only top 6 veteran forward)
Gagner (we don't have a number 2 center to replace him)
Dubnyk (only guy capable of being a legit starter on the team)
Smid (proven top 4 dman)
Petry (potential top pairing dman)
...damn that was kind of tough. You know it's funny, the Oilers DO have some good players and are creating depth... they have some good prospects and young NHL players... hopefully they can turn things around and start to realize some of this potential, come together as a team, because as I said, they do have good players... Problem is 2C and their overall toughness/grit. But they're getting there.
