Dan DeKeyser will be going to Detroit.

Read it somewhere. Don't remember where.

Heard otherwise since they already have NHL ready prospects. Either way, I'd prefer Sustr

im starting to think that college is the way to pluck out your pluggers. since the undrafted players can be 20-23 you can have a pretty good idea where they cap as far as size and strength go.

Last I read on Hockey's future is Antoine Laganiere is someone the Oilers are looking at. He's a 6'4 C and has a good skill set

I think they're worth the risk. They're just 22 year old prospects who have been developed by good systems, meaning they haven't been ruined by us yet, so it would make sense for us to sign some.

This guy seems like he could be a good fit, definitely worth a shot. Another guy who's apparently really good is Nate Schmidt.

I would love to see them sign him, seems like he could be one of those "free draft picks" college UFAs that makes an impact.

I would assume the Oilers have seen Hartzell a few times since he's the goalie on Kellen and Connor Jones' team.

Would be nice to add a goalie like him or Chris Rawlings.

I like the idea of signing college goalies. Since goalies take 6-8 year to develop, plucking them out of college makes it easier for the teams development.
