Apparently, being first means being best because with training camp still several weeks away, The Hockey News is picking the Edmonton Oilers to finish 11th in the Western Conference.
Now, I'm not convinced the Oilers are a playoff team this coming season, but picking them, or any other team for that matter, to finish in a particular spot seems just a tad premature, don't you think? Maybe wait until, what, the first week of September? Or until preseason? What's the hurry, THN?

I loved watching Theoren Fleury play in the NHL in his prime, but that prime was a long time ago and that's why I'm hoping he regains his senses and forgets about trying to make a comeback.
