Longest home stand is 3 games
Longest road trip is 2 games
4 games against teams that should finish higher than us.
Man, I look at this breakdown and think its one of the worst possible scenarios for the team. Why?

Well, for one I think that the Oilers are prone to lose more game this month given the recovering Smyth, York, Horcoff and Brewer plus the distraction and absence of MC. Therefore the fact taht they play 8 Western Conf. teams is bad, because each of those are 4 point games... especially against the NE division.

Secondly, I think if anything, a decent road trip would be a great thing for the team at this point. With so much focus from the fans and media on the Comrie situation, the powerplay and the overall makeup of the team - getting away and pretending this stuff isn;t there would be a great thing.
