The Edmonton Oilers are on the brink of greatness. Taylor Hall, Magnus Paajarvi, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins are the young guns most people point to when discussing the bright future in Edmonton.
However, Devan Dubnyk may be the most important link to this team's success. Dubnyk, who played in only 35 games a season ago, will be asked to take on more responsibility as Nikolai Khabibulin continues to age. Dubnyk has enough upside to be considered the goaltender of the future for the Oilers, and with improved play in front of him, he could become an All-Star goaltender down the line.
