10. Edmonton Oilers
Strengths: Despite graduating some elite talents this season (along with quality role players) the Oilers still boast deep and diverse group of prospects. A look up and down the list shows size, skill, grit, and flair both up front and on the blue line. There is a nice mix of younger prospects like Tyler Pitlick or Curtis Hamilton and older NHL ready prospects such as Limus Omark. In goal, Olivier Roy and Tyler Bunz both have solid upside. Weaknesses: Unlike the beginning of the year when Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Magnus Paajarvi where in the stable waiting to be let loose, the high-end talent is no longer a hallmark of the Oilers prospect pool. There is also a lack of goaltending depth. Top 5 Prospects: 1. Martin Marincin, D, 2. Jeff Petry, D, 3. Tyler Pitlick, C, 4. Curtis Hamilton, LW, 5. Linus Omark, RW. Lost To Graduation: Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Magnus Paajarvi, Devan Dubnyk, Theo Peckham.
