I believe the pundits picked the oils to make the playoffs because of the quality of their competition. I don't think anyone expected Anaheim to be tied for the lead in pacific 10 game in. At the same time I doubt many would have thought LA would struggle like they are coming out of the gate.

So from the teams which are expected to duke it out for 7th and 8th spots, I can see why many thought oilers would make the playoffs.

Nashville
Minnesota
Dallas
Phoenix
Edmonton
Colorado

I personally like Nashville and Dallas from that group. However you can see why many felt oilers would contend for a playoff spot. Which by the way is a race they are still in.
