Beating A Broken Record to Death

I know it's been said over and over again but we got to remember that it's only 5 games left in the season. I remember hearing in the dark days of the offseason that a team can't make the playoffs in October but they can miss the playoffs in October.

I'm here to say that's wrong. Even in the shortened season last year the Oilers went from a dismal 9 game road trip mid March and then turned in a matter of 2 weeks found themselves in a playoff spot a week into April. The point is, even if these struggles last into December, a healthy team that has sufficiently learned a defensive system can easily turn the season around.

Just think that with a healthy Sam Gagner and Ryan Hamilton, the Oilers could be deciding which 3 of Acton Smyth Hamilton and Arcobello to play and which one to sit.

So don't get too torn up yet, the season is not lost Oilers fans.
