All it takes is a good run and you're in IMO.

Mind you, if the Oilers continue to play like they did vs Columbus, you can kiss any thought of the playoffs goodbye.
I agree, I personally expected the team to do well In a short season because of how young they are. But I'm pretty happy that although the team hasn't even come close to hitting its stride, they're still near a playoff position. I've also been impressed by players like Dubnyk, Gagner and Hemsky, which is good because you can't ride three 20 year olds.
