I'm optimistic for the first time in years. The line between bad and good in the NHL is very small and I think they could very well cross it this season. The addition of Schultz and Whitney coming back healthy is going to be huge as is Dubnyk getting a chance to be a starter full time.

The Oilers were abysmal last season when going into the 3rd period tied and with the additions and the big guys a year older I think they will go from losing almost all of those games, to winning a good number of them. Will it be enough to get into the playoffs? I'm not sure about that, but I think they will be close.
