Edmonton has arguably the best prospect in the league in Yakupov. If you want to count Nugent-Hopkins as a prospect still, then the Oilers have the top two. He should complement its many other first-round picks Edmonton has selected over the years.
The Oil are stacked on defense and have depth at just about every position.
A dearth of high-end centers is this club’s only weakness, and many of their top draft picks are already in the league, which makes it hard to consider them prospects still.
