The Next Wave NHL
EDMONTON OILERS
SUMMARY
The Oilers have plenty of depth as far as mid tier guys, but lack high end calibre prospects. There's some good depth on defense of puck moving defenseman.

UP
Drake Caggiula stepped up his game last year and concerns about his size seem outweighed by his speed and deception. He brings a bit of an edge as well, which is needed amongst Oilers forwards.

DOWN
Serious concerns about Jesse Puljujarvi's offensive game have propped up, and have hampered his potential upside. He needs a big year, and to take advantage of inevitable ice time in Edmonton, to get back to top prospect status.

WHO TO WATCH
Ethan Bear turns pro and it will be interesting to see if his amazing offensive abilites translate to the pro game, or were they simply junior stats that will not relate. A good year, and he could be a legit top offensive prospect.

TEAM RANK - 22nd
