Realignment: Good or bad for the Oilers’ playoff hopes?

Jonathan Willis
June 06 2013 12:28PM

The NHL is realigning its teams next season, a long overdue move that will shift Winnipeg to the West where they belong, ensure each team hosts every other team at least once, and groups teams more firmly along their time zone lines.

But is it good or bad for the Oilers’ playoff hopes?

The Light Side

It isn’t hard to find the upside here. There are eight playoff spots available to 14 teams. If the new format had been in place this year (and teams had finished in the same relative positions) with both the seventh-best (Detroit) and ninth-best (Columbus) teams in the West last year moving East, suddenly Phoenix, not Minnesota, would have held the final playoff berth.

Still assuming the same relative positions (we will get to schedule effects later) we would have seen the following playoff matchups:

  • Chicago (Div. B winner, Conference winner) vs. Phoenix (Wild Card II)
  • St. Louis (Div. B second) vs. Minnesota (Div. B third)
  • Anaheim (Div. A winner) vs. San Jose (Wild Card I)
  • Vancouver (Div. A second) vs. Los Angeles (Div. A third)

The playoffs would then have proceeded along divisional lines, with the winner of Chicago/Phoenix playing the winner of St. Louis/Minnesota, and the winner of Anaheim/San Jose playing the winner of Vancouver/Los Angeles for the divisional titles. Phoenix, though technically part of Division A, would have been eligible to win the Division B crown.

(Incidentally, moving Detroit out of Division B wrecked the most logical naming scheme for the divisions – Gretzky, Howe, Orr, and Lemieux, and that’s a shame.)

The Dark Side

There are a lot of good teams in the Oilers’ division, and the Oilers play a lot of games against them. How much impact will it have on the final standings? It’s hard to tell, but goal differential gives us a hint. I’ve chosen Edmonton and Dallas to represent each team, since Dallas is the closest team in the other western division to Edmonton. The following chart shows how many games each team will play against western opponents, multiplied by average per-game goal differential in 2013, and then combined for a total goal differential over the 50-game schedule (Because we don’t know which team in their own conference each club will play four games against rather than the usual five, I arbitrarily assigned that role to the worst team on each side).

It sounds complicated, but the important thing is that number on the bottom. Edmonton has a slightly tougher schedule by this measure, but the relatively small impact of the unbalanced schedule isn’t enough to make much difference – over 50 games, we’d expect identical teams in the Edmonton/Dallas slots to be one goal apart. The impact of playing in a tougher division only really matters for 11 games and in some of those Dallas will face the tougher opponent (Chicago and St. Louis are as difficult to bear as Edmonton’s rivals in Los Angeles, San Jose, Vancouver and Anaheim).

Bottom line: The slight negative impact of playing in the tougher division in the West is pretty minor, and more than compensated for by the fact that there are only 14 teams, not 15, competing for Western playoff spots. This is good for Edmonton.

Recently around the Nation Network

At Leafs Nation, Jon Steitzer sells the number one item in Jeff Schultz's favour (the disgruntled Caps defenceman wants to be traded) as an addition for any team: the weak market.

Right now Schultz is sitting on the last year of a deal with a $2,750,000 cap hit, so with one year before unrestricted free agency it may be worth rolling the dice on a 27 year old shutdown defender rather than getting in a bidding war with teams over guys like Robyn Regehr (who somehow signed a two-year extension) on July 5th. It is possible that Schultz could be bought out by the Capitals, but I’d expect that some team would be willing to take him for a year at that price off waivers. The NHL caliber defenseman UFA market is extremely limited when you look at players in their 20s, and is really limited to Ian White and Grant Clitsome before falling off a cliff into Ryan O’Byrne/Mike Kostka territory.

Maybe it's just the way it reads or the way I am interpreting some of the posts above, but it seems like a few people think the the Av's are still going to be in the Oilers new conf/div next season...

They have been moved to the Central conf/div. (or B Conference as its called now)

Obviously the Oilers will still be competing against them for likely a Wild Card spot next season. But at least they won't have them in their conf/div moving forward.

But again, maybe it's just me or the way it reads...

We need to analyse the schedule and look for critical groupings of games against the same opponent and possibly plan ahead on how we want to handle those specific stretches against the same teams.Some months it is clear we can gear up a different way systemiclly when we see these groupings of games,this lets us work into the systemic influence we need at the right times.

You are right to look back a few years to identify dynamic trends and try to look for connections to what those teams are doing systemiclly today and correlate that to our record against them.

It shouldnt matter what teams are close to us,it is our systemic execution that will decide games not the opponents we face.

We dont need to be even thinking reactively,who cares if they are big or small short or tall,we will gladly punish them all.

We plan on finishing first so the teams we step over dont have names to us,they are just numbers,2 points each.

Realignment is good because it means we have a full season to look forward to.

I am more than a little worried that your "critical groupings" are not connected to your own "systemic influences" which is causing you to produce a "dynamic" amount of CRAPOLA!

Hey JW, enjoyed reading this article in exchange of just talking draft/UFA's buyouts, etc, for today.

I love that this now brings back the other team hate factor more so than the past years, especially for the playoffs.

We have had great history of playoff hockey against all those teams but it left the past 7 yrs.

It was time for change but also, with now 7 teams in the Oilers new division trades in the future will be more intriguing/challenging as well.

Last I want to say there is not really any big change or negativity here as the Oilers will still need to be over the 90 - 93 pt mark to get into their division playoff rounds.

Willis : Any indication of which clubs we play 6 with , as opposed to five in our new division for next season ? Could go a long way to maybe being a playoff team if it's with the bottom ones . Another Schultz at 6ft.6in. - 27 years of age might be an upgrade compared to some on our club .

I will enjoy the fact that every team plays every team at least twice. It will be nice to see every team in the league against the Oil.

I also wonder how the divisions will shake out when there are Eastern Conference points to take, and not every game is a four point game like it was this year.

If anything at least our coaches should be able to come up with individual game plans for the teams we face the most. Kind of like the playoff coaching strategies.

I like the analysis, but goal differential shouldn't tell the whole picture. Have you considered the impact of playing against Eastern Conference teams? Yes, every Western conference team plays same numbers of games against Eastern opponents, but do certain WC teams excel more and seem to benefit more from this change? How about looking at more recent team vs. team records? Edmonton plays well against Chicago, but awful against Minnesota and Detroit and Dalls. I think it would be useful if you took vs. records over the last few seasons and extrapolated that to the impact on the Oilers next season

There are certainly going to be question marks into how teams will compete with the new re-alignment. A team that is a lock for playoffs in the new divison is LA, the other teams it's tough to say. San Jose might do significant changes like trade a Marleau, Thornton, Boyle or Pavelski. Vancouver is definetly getting rid of Luongo and probably a few other players. Calgary is a given to finish last. Phoenix can lose Tippett and Mike Smith and not replace with similar personal. A wild card is Anaheim, they could of been playing over their heads this year and probably will lose Selanne to retirement. If the Oilers do significant changes and not just trade and sign low end players they could very well have a good shot at making the 3rd or 4th seed.

Prognosis for our next years new division : San Jose aging and may fall slightly as does L.A. who is more a playoff team than regular season team . Phoenix will fall the furthest with aging vets and other problems . Anaheim over Achieved this year and will fall slightly . Vanc. following back into pack as well . Not going to be Flames year , following back even further with youth . I think Colorado is the other one in group and I expect a big improvement from them . Oilers should also be on the rise with a new core , but if not a decent core , then we could easily remain at or near bottom of new division .

Probable bold finish : San Jose , L.A. , Oilers , Colorado , Vanc. , Anaheim , Phoenix , and Calgary . Middle four will be close in points . Now how's that for being bold ?

Hey JW, I tend to agrre with Dangilitis on the fact that the Oilers play great against several teams but lousy against others, as well, the Eastern conference of 2 games per team does make factors too of whether the Oil make it in or not.

Now....for "I'd rather have Shock and Awe, over just Bold"... I agree that the Oil must make some great and serious nchanges this yr as opposed to adding one to two pieces per season. Adding a goalie for Dubnyk to back up 25 games while being an average to over the hill guy does not help nor adding say...Klefbom and Belov to the defence only does not help and/or resigning only Petrell and Jones does not help as well, etc.

Against..."I'd rather have Shock and Awe, over just Bold"...or anyone else that's too negative... Although the team has five basic untouchables right now... whining here everyday and now... without seeing what the Oilers do yet this summer with... who they will get as new players and a new coach... does not make proper sense right now... due to that this team is not set up yet for training camp even. Let's wait for MacT and the draft first, then the buyouts/UFA's and then maybe the type trades he says/implies that he has to do first...before saying nothing but pouting statements..lol.

If you take a look at the other teams in the divisions centers.Then remember RNH will be out for some time then he will be coming off major shoulder surgery.That leaves Gagner,Horcoff and say Lander.To battle much larger stronger better centers.

That means another non playoff year.Unless Mac-T does something.

Basing next season on last season is an exercise in futility especially since the makeup of some teams could change dramatically.

However, we can take a look at how much ground the Oilers would have to make up based on last year's standings (projected 82 games)

ANA - 66 (112)

VAN - 59 (101)

LAK - 59 (101)

SJS - 57 (97)

PHX - 51 (87)

EDM - 45 (77)

CAL - 42 (72)

In order to secure a playoff spot without resorting to the wild card, the Oilers would need an additional 24 points or expect one of the top 3 to fall dramatically.

While the playoff cutoff in the past, in the WC has hovered around 95 points, in the new Pacific Division, it is likely going to be higher.

I think a reasonable expectation is that the Oilers would be looking at trying to secure a wild card spot.

To do so, they would need to finish ahead of 3 of the following teams.

CHI - 77 (132)

STL - 60 (103)

MIN - 55 (94)

WPG - 51 (87)

DAL - 48 (82)

NSH - 41 (70)

COL - 36 (67)

I think the Oilers will be the wild card race against the bottom 4 teams on the above list.

Winnipeg is likely going to have a tougher season playing in a tougher division.

Dallas has a new owner, new management and will have a new coach so it's tough to know what to expect from them.

Nashville needs a major upgrade at forward to be competitive IMO. It will be interesting to see if they do much over the summer.

I think Colorado under performed by a wide margin last season and I expect with new management and coaching staff they could be much, much better next season especially if Seth Jones or Nathan MacKinnon can step right into their lineup.

Well now, I just listened to M. Spector interview with MacT (today) and he infers that both Horcoff and Hemsky likely to be gone (traded I would think)so this is much more to the bold move side...if this does happen.

This then makes me think Taylor Hall will be the new Captain for 2013-14 ongoing.

Now this relates to this article because with proper changes, the Oilers will be fighting Col, Cal, Van and Phoe the most with division games...in order to place 4th.

I believe,without looking at Eastern conference games for now,...the Oilers playing LA, Anaheim, and San Jose will be the harder bigger teams to fight thru the sason. Out of these three, it does seem the Oilers do decent against LA.

My take, pending the Oilers summer rebuild action progress, is that though I hope for 2nd to 3rd place for the team....the Oil will be in the 4th to 5th place divisional standings mostly.

If Tambi was still at the helm, I would say that we are doomed. With MacT at the helm, we are only developmentally delayed.

I hope that our return to the playoffs comes within the next two seasons, otherwise, we face a full decade of futility.

Secondly , the article stated only the top 4 from each division advanced to playoff - so has does a wild card apply if that be the case ?

"The top three teams in each division will make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs.

The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, based on regular-season points and regardless of division.

It will be possible, then, for one division to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends three."

@Dawgtoy,

I agree with ya that MacT stated that both Horcoff and Hemsky leaving would be ideal...but I also think now...that MacT has intimated in the interview that there are prospective type deals going to be very soon made/buyout issues included for these two ....plus others which would concern Belanger, Eager, and maybe even including the trading of Nick Schultz and Peckham.

With Anton Belov here now Peckham becomes gonzo in a package.

Howver, this means that gagner is still to be here...and if so...I hope he relates more to being a 3rd line centre rather than 2nd.

Now...I was justwondering...if Edmonton just might deal with Philly for the trading of Philly's 11th pick and possibly Maxime Talbot or Brayden Schenn for the Oilers 7thpick, Gernat and Omark. Maybe a good deal???...Or...with this type deal would that be one thats too expensive for the Oilers??? At 11th pick though... if getting Talbot or Schenn, they would still likely pick up Ristolainen, Zadorov, Pulock, or McCoshen for defence.

I don't know who started it but I'll pick on you since you have "Systems" in your name. "Systemic" is not just a longer version of "systems" or mean "systems based". Systemic means "something that is spread throughout a system such as a financial, circulatory, nervous, system".

Saying "systemic execution", "systemic influence" do not mean what you intend.

No offense intended, just pointing out a pet peeve.

I am referring to the managment of the NewAge Hockey System,it is both created and managed using Intuitive Dynamic Analysis,traditional systems are made up of two parts or core influences,one Statistical and one Intuitive,the NHS ditches the Statistical side altogether and streamlines communication and managment potential by removing the bulk of the heavy lifting cerebrally and physically.

Systemic influences are what you use to develop and teach your system and its philosophys to the players.They are systemic because they run through every part of the organisation.There is only one systemic influence in the NHS.Intuition.

Systemic execution means that the expectation that specific Intuitive managment core values will be followed is present,dynamic individual micro-managment tactics.That execution runs through every aspect of the on-ice playaction making it "systemic"in nature.If the playaction I asked for contained both system generated and non-system generated dynamics catalysing execution then it wouldnt be pure systemic execution,the systemic influences would be diluted.

There is systemic execution where you freewheel to achieve the impact you want to make and there is systmeic execution where you are micro-managed in your body mechanics and actions to a higher degree.In the NHS systemic execution includes the constellation of Intuitve dynamic tactics and managment protocals amd the expectation they are adhered to tightly.In a traditional systemic execution you would not be micro-managed ,just expected to deliver the mail into set playactions,you would have a LOT of leeway in how you deliver the package to its destination.In the NHS HOW you get there is more important than just getting there.

The NHS doesnt use set play actions it uses Intuitive dynamic managment,so we re-work traditional minsets dont we.There is no better way to define the word "creative" as applied to ice hockey than through the execution of the NHS,because the majority of traditional player dynamic managment concerns and decisions are referred back to the system and dealt with there internally freeing them up cerebrally to focus on offensive dynamic opportunitys.

This means the NHS executes specific dynamics very tightly and catalyses its offense very creatively, not out of traditional set plays.You WILL work physically harder at NHS core value positional optimisation,but you will have 2/3 less cerebral interference,and fatigue will have less of an impact on error causality,you will be more tired but less mentally stressed,we refer the cerebral pressure back to our system while other teams are tired and working overtime cerebrally trying to adhere to a set play mentality as their bodies fade.We project a steady stream of influence with wayyy less gear changes.

I don't know who started it but I'll pick on you since you have "Systems" in your name. "Systemic" is not just a longer version of "systems" or mean "systems based". Systemic means "something that is spread throughout a system such as a financial, circulatory, nervous, system".

Saying "systemic execution", "systemic influence" do not mean what you intend.

No offense intended, just pointing out a pet peeve.

I am referring to the managment of the NewAge Hockey System,it is both created and managed using Intuitive Dynamic Analysis,traditional systems are made up of two parts or core influences,one Statistical and one Intuitive,the NHS ditches the Statistical side altogether and streamlines communication and managment potential by removing the bulk of the heavy lifting cerebrally and physically.

Systemic influences are what you use to develop and teach your system and its philosophys to the players.They are systemic because they run through every part of the organisation.There is only one systemic influence in the NHS.Intuition.

Systemic execution means that the expectation that specific Intuitive managment core values will be followed is present,dynamic individual micro-managment tactics.That execution runs through every aspect of the on-ice playaction making it "systemic"in nature.If the playaction I asked for contained both system generated and non-system generated dynamics catalysing execution then it wouldnt be pure systemic execution,the systemic influences would be diluted.

Sorry,phantom post there.

To finish up,the NHS destroys conventional traditional systems hands down every time for the EXACT same reason the Electric car pulverises the Indy car.It is the optimisation of the transmission of dynamic impact that makes the NEW system work farrrrr better then the old one,and quite obviously no one before they see the video will even entertain the idea an electric car would beatch slap an Indy car.

I dont give a dam what anyone thinks of how I post or of the NewAge Hockey System ,not one dam bit more than the man who designed the electric car cared what the now defined idiots believed.He was to involved in"creating" to be following the beaten path.I was to involved creating to follow the beaten path.He is a winner,if anyone has the guts to fully embrace the full and complete NHS,we will se the exact same type of literall destruction.

I am just calling the idiots idiots right dam now,because I was a competitor when I was younger and I know losers when I see them,I can smell them a mile away,I scent their fear throught their very words posted here.It is their attitudes and posturing that define them as idiots and eventual losers at anything they try to accomplish from a competative dynamic perspective and that sucess is all i care about,these bad communication and attitude habits are systemic for these people,they run right through every aspect of their lives.

The driver of the Electric car didnt EXPECT the Indy car driver to just hand his keys over now did he?Noooo man,he loved every second of that beatdown and cherished it absolutely.Imagine the BS he endured as he told people he was going to beatdown an Indy car with a few batteries and huge balls.Ha ha ha.

One day soon the NHS and I will smash-mouth an NHL squad ,and enjoy the moment,optimally the Oilers will be laying down the beating using the system specificlly designed for them.

The Juice is definately worth the Squeeze if you can conceptualise then manifest the dynamic template it takes to get to it.

@you-know-who...

Holy eye-cramp. See these two spaces after the period, and that one space after the comma? Those are intended to allow the reader visual and mental breaks between thoughts in order to get through the piece.

Sorry for playing the part of punctuation police, (and apparently alliteration Admiral) but you take up a lot of un-readable space on a site I read daily.
