Thought experiment: if every "kid" (Eberle, RNH, Yak, Hall, Schultz) on the team manages to have a better season (a massively unlikely thing), how many more points do the Oilers have at the end of the year?
RNH having a bounce back year, and Ebs not having a broken finger alone should be a drastic difference in points
