Number That May Interest Only Me, Oilers Roster Edition:  3

3

Competition is going to be scarce at training camp in September.  Assuming Gilbert Brule, Andrew Cogliano, Devan Dubnyk, Jordan Eberle, Kurtis Foster, Colin Fraser, Sam Gagner, Tom Gilbert, Taylor Hall, Ales Hemsky, Shawn Horcoff, Nikolai Khabibulin, Linus Omark, Magnus Paajarvi, Theo Peckham, Jeff Petry, Ladislav Smid and Ryan Whitney are all slotted for the NHL roster, open roster spot are in short supply.  Add the first overall pick, whether it's Adam Larsson or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, to the mix and there are only four spots left.  Assume that Tambellini and Renney will not lose their deep-rooted affection for goons and there remain just three open roster spots on the 2011-2012 Edmonton Oilers

A pass at what that roster might look like heading into training camp is below:

Left Wing 1 - Gagner - Hemsky





Hall - Horcoff - Eberle





Paajarvi - Cogliano - Omark





Left Wing 4 - Fraser - Brule

 

Whitney - Petry



Peckham - Gilbert



Smid - Foster

 

Dubnyk
Khabibulin

 

#1 pick
MacIntyre
Bench

 

The only openings are the two left wing spots and a bench spot.  Any hope of competing for a playoff spot in 2011-2012 will involve some significant roster changes.
