Cue this in and let it sink in your brain pan. THIS TEAM FINISHED 29TH LAST YEAR.

They are now challenging for the playoffs.

Is it sinking in yet?

Apparently not. Apparently you think this team should beat out veteran teams like the Sharks and the Red Wings and play shutdown hockey against them.... when the Oilers haven't been in this position for what... six years?

You people have unreal expectations.
So posters aren't allowed to be upset that the team continuosly blows third period leads? Are we all supposed to be content with games like this?
I believe their record after being tied or ahead going into the 3rd is the worst in the entire league BY FAR. Should that be deemed acceptable in your mind?

The team is fake .500 and they are hanging in a playoff race after 29 games but their record is actually worse than it was this time last season and the goal differential is worse. IMO, the only reason that they are in a playoff race is because it's a shortened season. I'm pretty confident that they would have been well out of the race by now if the season started in October.
The team is slightly improved from last season but don't let them being in a playoff race delude you into thinking that this is even close to a playoff team but there's always hope as long as remain close.
