After finishing last in the Northwest Division and last in the NHL, the Edmonton Oilers may finally have the team to find themselves in a good position for the future. The Oilers are going to be in a very tough Northwest Division this season with Vancouver, Calgary, Minnesota, and Colorado all making moves during the offseason.
The Oilers have a lot of young talent with some very high draft picks, from which they were able to pick up some very high caliber players such as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, and Magnus Paajarvi. All these players, with the exception of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, have already made a huge impact on the Oilers. Two of these players even lead the team in scoring and points.
These new players are the key to the Oilers future as they look to return to the days when Wayne Gretzky took the ice for them.
