Is this the year the oilers pass the Flames?

It's all about current form in a shortened season like this.
Some guys aren't playing.
Some are playing, here, there, wherever.
Some are playing together, on the same line, in the closest league to the NHL.
I think you get my point. Hall-RNH-Eberle are going to have a considerable head start advantage for what might be the first 3 weeks to a month. Between that, the addition of Schultz and health of Ryan Whitney I think the Oilers are going to easily make the playoffs.
I think there defensive shortcomings and weakness in goal is overblown. I also think these areas are improving. And clearly their forward group is getting completely out of hand.
They may not win many 2-1 games - nor will they need to. This is looking like old school fire wagon 5-3 hockey if you ask me.
I'm glad a lot of people disagree so we can bump this
