1163 gives us 53 points which should be competitive.

53 points puts the Oil 789 in the conference.
The past four games gave a glimmer of hope. The next six will tell the tale. After the next six games will be the trade deadline. If there is still a reasonable chance of playoffs at that point then the Oilers should be buyers. If playoffs are only mathematically possible (i.e. needing more than 22 points in the remaining 14 games) than the Oilers should be sellers.
