So basically, the oddes of them not making the playoffs is alot of higher, cause chances are, even as a hockey fan, I think Edmonton is easily the weakest link off the 4 teams, (Calgary Colorado, Vancouver, Minnesota) Edmonton is still behind those teams.
Honestly I can't say Edmonton is as good as any of those 4 teams. They still have done nothing to prevent goals. Pitkanen may be a puck mover but he played like a girl last year, Souray is not a puck mover really.
They have a near 40 year old goalie, no offensive superstar, and a defense that won't be known for it's defensive ability.
