Most Valuable Oiler #14

Who do you think is the fourteenth most valuable Oiler going forward?

Consider age, contract, injury history, positional value, leadership, potential, etc... One way of thinking of it would be: in a trade to a neutral team, who would bring the greatest return?

1. Taylor Hall (75%)
2. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (70%)
3. Nail Yakupov (65%)
4. Jordan Eberle (65%)
5. Justin Schultz (75%)
6. Sam Gagner (30%)
7. Ladislav Smid (40%)
8. Oscar Klefbom (30%)
9. Devan Dubnyk (40%)
10. Jeff Petry (60%)
11. David Perron (55%)
12. Darnell Nurse (70%)
13. Andrew Ference (50%)

Hemsky is a much better player but to the Oilers Gordon holds a lot more value.
To me its a toss up between Gordon and Marincin..
Voting Gordon due to the unknown\prospect factor with Marty.

I voted Marincin as I think he'll grow into an important piece of the defence and has good trade value right now. I was quite impressed by his rookie year in the AHL. Gordon will be valuable for his time in Edmonton but I put him narrowly behind Marincin because of what Marty could contribute to the Oilers for a number of years. I think Hemsky has the potential if he has a good year to return a 1st round pick or two 2nd's at the trade deadline, but that's far from a certainty. Even so is that better than Marincin? Marincin could be a Fransson type d-man who can actually play defense too.

It's trendy to rag on Hemsky but it would be ridiculous for him not to win at this point.

Why would it be ridiculous to pick Gordon over Hemsky?
The OP stated that the criteria is age, contract, injury history, positional value, leadership and potential.
IMO contract, injury history, potential and positional value are the most important categories and in particular positional value when gauging value to the team and Hemsky fails big in the contract, injury history and positional value categories.

Boyd Gordon AINEC. The fact that Ales Hemsky has this many votes is frightening.

At least Marincin finally got added. If people here think Hemsky has more value than Gordon/Marincin, they seriously need to turn in those pink goggles.

Oilers wouldnt skip a beat without Hemsky but would be in big trouble without Gordon.

It asks for trade value. Hemsky literally has no trade value. Bob Stauffer, the guy in the media probably most connected to the Oilers, said that as of right now, Hemsky would return even less than Horcoff without salary retain. Even guys like Anton Lander and David Musil should be ahead of Hemsky.

I voted Martin Marincin, I take it some just haven't witnessed Oklahoma City yet. That's good that he goes under the radar to surprise some people next season. I'm also looking forward to see how Gernat and Musil adapt to pro hockey this upcoming season.
