you keep saying this as if it is true... it's not

the 2012-13 oilers are on pace for 82 points over a full season... 82 points, since the last lockout, would put the team in 22nd-23rd overall ... the current team is a good deal better than the team in the past 3 years, who finished 30th, 30th and 29th (just in case you forgot).... tell me again, is 22nd the same as 30th?

i agree that they are only challenging for a playoff spot because of the shortened season though... if this was a full season, we wouldn't have been challenging by the trade deadline (as it appears we might be this season)
