Be more efficient, make a poll: who would edmonton beat in a 7 game series. Put every other team but dont put the option of "none" and there you go

Calgary had 16 more regular season points, but they lost their 2nd best forward, and Edmonton added Yakupov and Schultz, not to mention their other young guns are a year older. I think it's closer than people think, but I gotta go with Kipper and the Flames.

Calgary in 7. Oilers still have question marks in net.

This.

The Flames probably have the worst centre depth in the NHL, and have gotten much, much smaller up front overall. The Flames have also lost quite a bit of the grinding physical element they have been known for both at forward and at defense. This series would be a lot more interesting than people here like to think.

Not really, with all the question marks the Oilers have, safe pick is easily Calgary.

Goaltending is highly questionable compare to Calgary, and that is the biggest thing, Calgary's D is MUCH more solid, also another big thing, Oilers also have all unproven playoff guys up front, Calgary has experiance, Iginla is the best forward of both groups and Cammalleri is a ppg in the playoffs, and basically the Oilers are depending on 5 kids in a pressure situation to carry them.

Playoffs start today and it's between Calgary and Edmonton?

Nice of them to have an offseason golf tournament.

In all seriousness, Edmonton in six. Probably a few strokes under Calgary, too.

Iggy goes God mode and carries Calgary to a victory with 6 goals in 6 games.

how many more drafts will the Oilers need to break out of the cellar? well if they keep drafting these little kids that project 2-3 years out and then never get there - it will be a long, long time...

Oilers...Their still weak in nets but the addition of Yakupov and Justin Schultz makes them better imo, especially compared to a team that seems to worsen every year like Calgary.

I seriously doubt 2 kids that have never set foot on NHL ice are going to make a positive impact being thrown into a playoff series today. Somebody gonna get their head ripped off and in turn Eager will assure ample powerplay time for Calgary.
