With the season fast approaching I started thinking about the roster and the players that need to make an impact this season. Here are five Oilers that I'll have my eyes on this year, and why I think they'll have a chance to succeed. As always, I encourage you to argue my list, create your own, and then we can spend the afternoon arguing away company time just as Connor McDavid would want us to do.

Everyone loves best-on-best hockey, and it's almost here!
We've waited over a year for it, and now it's like Christmas Eve for the hockey world. World Cup of Hockey training camps are well underway, games start on September 17th and fans couldn't be more ecstatic! Except, reality tells us that isn't really the case.
Everywhere you look, there's an extremely negative aura floating around the World Cup. It's hard to tell exactly what the majority opinion is, but it's hard to ignore the vocal naysayers striking down the idea of the tournament.
