I think we've got a better chance at consistent play over long stretches, but you can never dismiss a team with that much potential firepower. I think you'll be safe this year. It's really hard, in the West, to make the playoffs with a negative goal differential. It's equally as hard to get in the playoffs with such poor 5 on 5 play.
For a team with that much firepower, it's interesting they are having about as hard of a time as we do of putting the puck in the back of the net.
I am not one to wish ill on another team, even the Red wings, but i will make an exception for the Oilers.
May they languish in last place
