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.

Who cares about what is acceptable or not? The world doesn't revolve around what should be, but around what is.

And what is... is that the Oilers are not experienced at holding leads, nor even being in a playoff run. why are people so mad when they fail to do, when that should be pretty much expected?
