Like Dustin Neilson said, if the playoff cut is projected to be 55 points this year. The oilers need 30 more points in their next 22 games... So they would have to go 15-7 the rest of the way or something like 13-5-4.

In order for this to happen they need to go on a 4-5 game win streak in there some where so that they only have to go 10-7 the rest of the way, a little better than .500.

Realistically it doesn't look good, but because we are in the "easier" half of our season where the majority of games are at home, we have a fighting chance.

Personally I think they will end up in 10-11th in the West, which I deem a successful season.

The media really threw the expectations of this team this year out the window when a bunch of them chose the Oilers to be their under dog team and make the playoffs...

If you were to ask everyone last year where they would place this year the majority of them would not say in the playoffs.
