To be fair, the Oilers did finish 9th in the conference in 2007-08 and were mathematically eliminated only in game 81 and still managed to mathematically eliminate Vancouver in game 82.

The following season, the Oilers were actually in a playoff spot with 11 games remaining (... which they promptly squandered... so I guess you could say they just folded).

EDIT: And yes, the team this year is doing way better than the last three.
