The Oilers fly into the Mile High City with lofty expectations. A solid beginning to the season has them looking down at everyone in the western conference except Chicago and St. Louis. They should be satisfied with their 23 points, but not comfortable as Anaheim is one back, while San Jose and Los Angeles are two points behind.

Since the NHL switched to two divisions in each conference, 87.5% of western conference teams (21 of 24) who were in a playoff spot at the quarter mark of the season made the playoffs. Each year one team fell out of a playoff spot over the final 3/4 of the season.

Last year the Jets were in eighth today, but Anaheim, after their atrocious start, bumped them out. In 2015, LA was seventh and missed, while the Jets jumped up from ninth to make it. In 2014, Phoenix (now Arizona) was in fourth spot (14-4-3), but they finished ninth, two points behind Dallas who sat in ninth place at the quarter mark.

LOWER THE SIGHTS?

The Edmonton Oilers have a few former Condors on the 23-man roster this season, and some of them are making a difference. Names like Anton Slepyshev and Tyler Pitlick are helping the big club in support roles, and perhaps these men will hang around and become part of the success in Edmonton. Both players have surprised with their NHL offense, and that has me wondering if we may have missed some offensive indicators in Bakersfield. Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.
