Being somebody who doesn’t mind the occasional stroll down memory lane when it comes to the Edmonton Oilers, I’ve been having fun compiling and writing the Top 100 Oilers of all-time list over the last several months.
Every now and then, something I come across while putting together and researching the list – a quote or a situation I’d forgotten or a tidbit I didn’t know of at all – triggers another train of thought. Likewise, many of your responses in the comments section have done the same.

What should we consider a success when looking at a five-year span of NHL drafts? If a team lands one superstar and a few solid players is that good? Do you need to have one solid player from each year? I think we will all have different views of success, and after a conversation on twitter with Jonathan Willis I wanted to look at all 30 teams draft success between 2007-2011.

Vincent Damphousse was an absolutely terrific player, a guy who used a combination of quickness and hockey smarts to score 70-or-more points in a season eight times during his NHL career. Unfortunately, Damphousse did it just once as a member of the Edmonton Oilers, leading the team in scoring with 89 points during the 1991-92 season.
