Oilers 2 Players Away From First NHL Team Since 2006

2 more real NHL players and the Oilers have a full NHL Roster for the first time since EVER. Is the tank, hm rebuild over finally? How some of the past rosters were even allowed to compete in the NHL and not kicked back to the AHL is beyond me. If anyone wants some help digging the 8 year knife out of your back, the line is over there at the rexall pharmacy pickup.

Hall RNH Ebs
Perron Gordon Yakupov
Pouliot Hendricks Purcell
_______ ________ Gazdic

Marty Petry
Nikky Pain
Fairence Dr.Scholltz

Fasth
Scrivens

That lineup hurts. Even if they're almost all NHL level players.

Please oh please let a defender break out this year.

Gordon and Hendricks on different lines? check

Gordon AND Hendricks playing center? check

Gordon and Hendricks not on the 4th line? check

This is what the Oilers lineup WON'T look like

I love Boyd Gordon but if he's your second-line centre than you're not an NHL team. End of.

So are the 2 missing players Pronger and Peca? I'm going to predict that we won't be adding players of that level this season.

Those are all fine. They both just need to be bumped down 1 line

Pouliot Gordon Purcell
_______ Hendricks Gazdic

There's a more realistic look at the blanks. Or even moreso,

Hall RNH Ebs
Perron _______ Yakupov
Pouliot _______ Purcell
Hendricks Gordon Gazdic

And we're going to plug in Arcobello, Lander, Draisaitl or a waiver pickup in those spots, so unless we get an unexpected breakout performance of 45-55 points out of one of those guys, we're still not looking great despite having much better wing depth.

Just imagine if there's a season-ending injury to RNH this season.


Arcobello
Draisaitl
Gordon
Hendricks

And if there's a season ending injury to Giroux, Stamkos, or Ovechkin, those teams are all in trouble too.

But if the Oilers lose RNH,the Oilers will officially have the worst center depth in the NHL.

I agree with you man, I'm just saying let's hope we don't have to play out this scenario where RNH is injured.

I think: RNH - Arco - Drai - Gordon can be a competitive center depth.

That being said, in response to OP I think we are, in fact, two players away:

Hall-Nuge-Eberle
Perron-XXX-Yakupov
Pouliot-Draisaitl-Purcell
Hendricks-Gordon-Pitlick

XXX-Fayne
Marincin - Petry
Nikitin - Schultz
Klefbom

Even with RNH, is there someone that has worse centre depth than us?

Yet the Lightning somehow made the playoffs without Stamkos for most of the year. The Flyers are a borderline team and without Giroux they miss the playoffs. The Capitals are barely borderline and definitely miss the playoffs if Ovechkin is out. We are at best bottom feeders and with an RNH injury we're definitely picking first or second again this year. No depth at all at center. Maybe that's not that bad, we can get one more piece in this deep draft, but it does mean this season is once again a write off and not worth watching.

Even your scratches should be NHL quality tho.

When you can choose between scratching a PP specialist on D VS a shutdown guy, then you have an NHL roster.

The Oilers have the worst center depth in the league WITH RNH. That's how bad the situation is.
If he gets injured for any length of time, might as well plan the McDavid draft party.

Most depressing place on the internet. They should advertise for antidepressants on this site specifically.

We're all in the same location, some version of hockey hell.
The difference is that you and I have come to terms with it and have accepted our residence in the depths of hockey purgatory.

I'd imagine someone would be swapped to center. Didn't Hall play center for a bit in junior?
