The thing that makes this tricky is that the Flames have more try and grit in their lineup making them a tough team to play.

The Oilers have more talent but they also have an unbalanced lineup with little to no top 6 grit and outside of Smid a fairly passive defence.

You beat the Oilers by using a high tempo forecheck and a strong cycle.
The Canucks used that formula and made it look easy on Saturday.
Other teams will be taking notes.

Their is no excuse for the Oilers not to finish ahead of the Flames considering the Oiler have sucked for 7 years and acquired a bunch of top picks as a result. That doesnt mean the Flames will be as bad as the Oilers have been during their rebuild though.
Tambo was about as incompetent as it gets.
