Three Oilers Make Corey Pronman's Top 100 Prospects

Corey Pronman of Hockey Prospectus posted his Top 100 NHL Prospects today. Three Oilers made the list.

1. Nail Yakupov
12. Justin Schultz
78. Oscar Klefbom

Martin Marincin just missed the top 100. You can see the complete list here.

Three out of the top 100 prospects might not sound that impressive, but keep in mind that players like Jordan Eberle, Magnus Paajarvi, Taylor Hall, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins are no longer considered prospects by Pronman. (You can find his definition of “prospect” in the article.) Also, having the number one prospect is never a bad thing.
