Below is a link to the 08-09 Oilers roster coached by MacT. They got 85 pts and finished 11th and 6 pts out of a playoff spot

Below is a link to the 09-10 Oilers roster coached by Quinn. They got 62 pts and finished last in the NHL and 33 pts out of a playoff spot.

The team is very close in terms of personnel from 09 to 10. Yes injuries played a role but they dropped 23 points from the year before. You can't just point to injuries and goaltending and say that's why the team was so bad. Good coaches can keep a team competitive with less than ideal personnel......see 2013 Ottawa Senators.
