They have to beat us in the regular season or meet us in playoffs before we care about them.

Fair enough the flames might have a decent load of good vets and competent D but their offense is lacking. Our forwards are superior in every way and I don't think any hockey fan would dispute that. Aside from Iginla, what forward would you want on the Oilers. I would take Hall, RNH, Gagner, Paajarvi, Eberle over any of the flames forwards.

As for goaltending, I think Dubnyk will outperform Kipper and this I'm not saying this for being biased, I truely believe this. Kipper is on the decline and his numbers were mediocre last year. Kipper had a save percentage of 0.906 compared to Dubnyk's last years 0.916. Dubnyk is young and hungry and is only gonna get better while Kipper is well....you know...on the decline.

I hated Winnipeg ever since they announced that the team is coming back on May 31 2011.

Oilers-Jets rivalry is back. Having the Jets back is like having one of your biggest villains come back from the dead.

This X 5.

Poll needs an 82 option and then I can vote.

What team are you watching? They don't have much for offense. Baertschi will help majorly, but he's not ready. They're defense took a MASSIVE hit losing Regehr and Kipper is nothing special anymore. If it wasn't for the fact they have Iggy, I'd say they would come dead last. As is, they're still a bottom 10 team.
