    Oh for Christ's sake, everyone's been making such a fuss and the Oilers are only 4 points back of a playoff spot in NOVEMBER!? I know they haven't been very good for most of the year so far, but 4 points!? Those greasy Oilers will have a partner when the dance cards are filled out for the post season.

    There was this little observation by Elliot Friedman a few years back:
    " just three of 32 NHL teams at least four points out of a playoff spot on Nov. 1 recovered to make the playoffs from 2005-06 to 2011-12 "

    Interesting. I'm sure it's even tougher now than during that stretch due to more parity. That being said, I think they will pull it off.

    It's not the four points that is important here.

    It's the 5 other teams they are behind who are also trying to get in the playoffs and are currently on the outs looking in.

    I totally get this and agree somewhat. I still believe that the Oilers have the talent and will make the playoffs.

    I think those who believe the Soilers are just going to brush off this start and cruise into the playoffs are delusional. This is a bad hockey team. Night after night they are getting pounded.

    Dude, phrasing? Okay, maybe not "cruise" into the playoffs, maybe more like "slide"?
