Again, I'm just looking for insight from the fan base.
There is no reason why the Oilers should be in Jones/MacKinnon territory if the season is played, i don't know why some Oiler fans think this.
I'm pretty sure that most Oiler fans are hoping/expecting the Oilers to make a sizeable jump in the standings next season, anything less would be completely unacceptable.
A team with Hall, RNH, Eberle, Yakupov, Gagner, Hemsky, Smid, Petry, Whitney, Schultz's should be vastly improved. If anything, this lockout should help that cause with the young players coming in more experienced whenever the NHL starts up again.
I'm not expecting playoffs but there's no reason why this team can't at least make a push for one of the final playoff spots.
