Seven games, thirteen days, seven time changes and over 13,500 km to travel....OUCH. That works out to just a little less than flying from Edmonton to Vancouver 13 days in a row. That is the Oilers current road trip.
Even though they came home for the Christmas break the game in Vancouver there remains another six more to go...lots of time to come together for the long term.

The Oilers are in the middle of a tough stretch. They have dropped 5 of their last 7 and a quick look at the upcoming schedule suggests it doesn't get any easier.

Yesterday Gary Bettman submitted and the board of governors approved a new four conference format. Assuming the NHLPA okays the changes, the new system will be in place next season.
