I still think one of them would have to go back. But even then the Oilers would have to already be very good and Burns would have to be pretty excited as he has a modified NTC. Seems people are overlooking that but my guess is he has quite a few teams he can list on that he won't go to. Maybe things will change for Edmonton, but right no I doubt they have made their way off that list.
