Ken Holland: “I always look at the standings on U.S. Thanksgiving, right at the end of November. From there, you move in a pack. You’ve sort of shown the winning percentage you’re going to move at.” Guess what? The Edmonton Oilers are running with the pack. It's been awhile.

Enough already. It’s time to put a familiar and tired storyline out of its misery. Against the odds and common sense, I’m saying the Edmonton Oilers are going to do that against the Minnesota Wild at the Xcel Energy Center Friday and win a hockey game.

The Edmonton Oilers have employed some very effective 4th lines over the years. Jim Dowd was just this side of a folk hero during his time in Edmonton, Shawn Horcoff got his start there and over the next several years Oiler fans will be seeing a lot of kids like Curtis Hamilton and Tyler Pitlick breaking in on the 4line. Quick question: how soon can they get here?
