While yes the chances aren't as high as they would be if they recycled last year's standing, but I think the oilers chances aren't as bad as it seems. The criteria for selection takes into account first overall selections and also playoff appearances, or lack thereoff, in recent seasons.The penguins got the first pick after the lockout in 2005 and had already gotten a first overall in 2003. Also, the oilers currently have the second longest playoff drought in the whole league, behind only toronto. It is also possible they change the format. But hey, in a lottery involving the whole league, anything could happen
