Edmonton Oilers Pro Depth Chart

The bottom of the depth chart looks like multi-car pileup. - Frederick Breedon

Two new faces on the left side, four in the middle, and one starboard mean 1/4 of the forward depth chart has rolled over. Depth is an issue at all three positions, but is especially a concern at centre, where they have but three NHL-level centres and one of them, Nugent-Hopkins, won't be healthy to start the season. The summer talk involves moving Taylor Hall to the middle, but that leaves little NHL-level talent on the left.

Left Def
Right Def
Ladislav Smid
Jeff Petry
Andrew Ference
Justin Schultz
Nick Schultz
Anton Belov
Denis Grebeshkov
Corey Potter
Oscar Klefbom
Philip Larsen
Martin Marincin
Taylor Fedun
Brandon Davidson

Brad Hunt

David Musil

Martin Gernat

Darnell Nurse

Craig MacTavish acquired five new faces on the left, and two on the right as he overhauled more than half of the defensive corps, with special attention paid to rebuilding the right side, but the organization remains left-heavy on the blueline.

Goal
Devan Dubnyk
Jason Labarbera
Richard Bachman
Frans Tuohimaa
Olivier Roy
Tyler Bunz

Labarbera replaces Nikolai Khabibulin and Bachman takes over for Yann Danis while Tuohimaa appears on the depth chart for the first time. Dubnyk is a rare thing in Edmonton - a goaltender brought up through the organization, while veterans Labarbera and Bachman bring stability and consistently to the position.
