HFOilers Ranks: Top 20 Oilers Prospects

Thought it would be fun to do one of these this year.

24 Hours per vote.

20 different poles until we have our top 20.

If you think it's time for someone to be added to the voting list just LMK in the comments.

1) Jujhar Khaira (2012 61st)
2) Mitch Moroz (2012 32nd)
3) Darnell Nurse (2013 7th)
4) Leon Draisaitl (2014 3rd)
5) Bogdan Yakimov (2013 83rd)
6) Greg Chase (2013 188th)
7) Oscar Klefbom (2011 19th)
8) Martin Marincin (2010 46th)

I have a feeling the top 4 will be pretty easy. After that it will get interesting.

Everyone should hold off revealing lists till the end.

First poll is pretty obviously between Leon and Nurse.

Went Draisaitl I think he has more upside then Nurse. Don't be surprised if he dethrones RNH as our number 1 center at some point down the line, he put up more impressive numbers in junior.

Marincin counts still? If so...

1. Draisaitl
2. Nurse
3. Marincin
4. Klefbom

Gernat and Musil should defintely be on this list. They'd arguably be my #5 and 6.

Nurse.

The guy's potential is #1 elite D. His development is going very well. He looks very mobile and is over 200 lbs now. He's been getting the most difficult competition than everyone else in the OHL. Draisaitl will likely always be a solid 2nd line center on the Oilers.

Draisaitl I feel he's a safe bet to reach his potential. Not as sure about Nurse although Nurse's upside is huge it's just harder to project young D men.

I'll add them. Along with a few more.


And damn this poll is close. I personally voted for Darnell, I think his ceiling is insane.

Nurse is definitely our #1 prospect right now imo. His upside is insane.


Whoever wins, just make the other #2. There's no question they're a step ahead

Remember to take away a vote for LD, and give it to Nurse.

Leon is number 1 imo. I like nurse, but D are harder to predict than big skilled C.

I picked LD

Nurse hitting the peak of his potential could make him like Pronger. He sure does look promising, but IMHO there are major similarities between him and Pfaneuf (I mean that in both a good and bad way).

I think at this point we can be certain they will both make the NHL, but I'm not completely sold they will be as good as we hope.

went with Draisatl...mainly cause I think his ceiling is a little higher than Nurse's and safer to reach that ceiling..it's close

Draisaitl has the most upside and is most likely to reach that upside IMO so he gets my vote. I generally have more confidence in forwards than defenseman so if all is fairly equal, i would favor the forward.

Nurse is still a question mark for me. His game is still really raw and not close to NHL ready based on what i saw of him in the AHL playoffs but the high end skillset is certainly there.
