The Oilers should be miles ahead of the Flames by this juncture. The fact that they're not speaks volumes.
Edmonton had a -9 goal differencial.
Calgary a -32. In only 48 games...
One spot in the standing but a far cry from "almost".
But you are a bit correct. The Oiler's should be further ahead than they are.
Rebuilds take time as you are about to find out, but I think Edmonton is a full year behind where I though they would be.
I don't even want to think about what another bad year would mean.
Realisticly speaking the Flames are in year one of a 4-5 year rebuild, they "shouldn't" be catching the Oilers in that time.
