Detroit. Edmonton doesn't have the depth, experience, or the grit. Relying on kids to carry you in a 7 game series isn't going to get you anywhere.

Trick question: an Oilers- Red Wings series right now would go nowhere near 7 games.

Almost makes me want to track down the pissing contest that spawned this poll.

Almost.

That's great, if you're expecting Miracle on Ice, but we're talking about a playoff series. Detroit is the better team at even strength. The only way Edmonton would stand a chance is if Detroit is just too undisciplined, and they give Edmonton the opportunity to let their PP carry the way. Unlikely.

You're reaching. Tootoo isn't going to lose a playoff series on his own.

It's pretty simple: Edmonton just isn't good enough at even strength. With the PP they had, and a PK that had them in the top half of the league, they were still one of the worst teams in the league. Until Edmonton can win games at even strength, they aren't going to win a playoff series. If they can't do it during the regular season, what hope do they have in the playoffs when games get tougher, more defense-oriented, and there are fewer penalties?

Edmonton has a good future, but they aren't there yet, and the team they have just isn't built for playoff hockey. It's more the anti-playoff team right now.

Detroit would win in 4-5 games pretty easily.

Another Oiler fan overrating his team and prospects what do you know You have zero defense or goalie. Which means you aren't even close to being a playoff team not to mention going 7 games deep with Detroit. Get this crap out of here

Oilers had a more experienced team back then. Pronger, Smyth, Rolo was running hot throughout the playoffs. Edmonton simply doesn't have that now, and wouldn't stand a chance.

Is this a trick question?

Edmonton is going to be a huge contender in the future. Currently? For as bad as everybody seems to think Detroit's defense is, Edmonton's is far worse. Not to mention Detroit has a good goalie, offensive depth, and experience.

Detroit in five. The kids would get a win.

The views expressed in the OP are not necessarily the views of all Oiler fans. Or like..any. Detroit easily.
