Comparables

Byron Bader does great work at Hockey Prospecting, finding comparable players from the past to offer some clues about an unwritten future. In the case of recent Oilers first-round selection Reid Schaefer, Bader’s model shows a 12 percent chance of a star and a 44 percent chance of an NHL player.

Now, the team will look to build on that success in the 2022-23 season and show that their run to the final four was far from a fluke. When you look at their roster as it’s currently constructed, it’s easy to see a way for the Oilers to be a much better regul
