This has to be the absolute stupidest assertion that is made on these boards on a regular basis. The ole we are .500 by including ot and so wins but not including ot/so loses as if that is an indication of doing well. Last year there were 23 teams at .500 or better according to this foolish way of looking at it. If you are a .500 team in this league these days you are a bad team.

The Oilers are 5-8 if you include ot/so 2-5 if you don't.
2-5 is representative of how this team has played. There hasnt been a single game where they've played 60 full minutes, there hasnt been a single convincing win or dominant performance, we are constantly outshot by wide margins, and our 5 on 5 play is atrocious. Without Dubie standing on his head, we'd probably close to winless this year. Things have to improve in a lot of areas and fast, or we are looking at drafting in the top 5 yet again.
