Edmonton Oilers 2011-12 preview
To say the Edmonton Oilers are building through the draft would be a gross understatement. The team has accumulated a plethora of young stars including Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, Magnus Paajarvi and new edition Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. But there are still holes in the lineup and our experts expect them to have another top pick next June. On this edition of the THN Puck Panel we continue our 30 team previews in 30 days with a look at the Edmonton Oilers. Host Edward Fraser is joined by writer Ryan Kennedy and editor in chief Jason Kay to discuss… Whether or not the team surrounded its young core with the right people… The lack of offensive depth… Having a healthy Ryan Whitney for the entire season… And Devan Dubnyk replacing Nikolai Khabibulin as the team’s No. 1 goaltender.
