Because all the teams ahead of us aren't going to lose every game waiting for us to catch up.

The Oilers can't just win their next 2 games and be in 8th place. Odds are that at least 1-2 of the teams ahead of them in the standings would also win their two games. The Oilers would have to win 5-6 in a row to temporarily get into 8th.

Ignoring the fact that all the teams ahead of the Oilers will also be picking up points is delusional.
