Can the Oilers make the post-season?
Mon, March 31, 2008

Can exuberance make up for inexperience? Can momentum make it possible to scoff at long odds?

The Edmonton Oilers insist the answer is yes. And now that they've climbed to within three points of a Western Conference playoff berth with 12 wins in their last 15 games, who's to say they're wrong?

Can the Oilers make the post-season? Have your say in our forum.

If they do squeak in gordholio, it will be a comeback to match their monumental swoon last year, and should earn them any "comeback of the year" awards being handed out by the various magazines/sports shows, etc.

They certainly have their own fate squarely in their own hands as their last two games are against Calgary and Vancouver.

I'm hoping for them as, like Washington, this is an exciting team to watch.

I also believe they'll be a force sooner than later.

doesn't matter whether the oilers make the playoffs or not, we've watched the most exiting hockey over the last month, and although i would love them to be in the playoffs we have the most exiting young team in the leauge with huge potentialm, the next 5 years will be phenomanal to watch...glad i'm not in ontario!!!

They might squeak in, but I doubt it. Anyways, Edmonton has a lot of really good, young players on their team.

I counted the number of young players and they have about 18 right now (26 or under) and some good ones in the system.

They are going to be a major force in about 3 years.

By George Festus (no pun intended) I think you may be onto something there. Same syntax - same insults. And neither can do simple math. He called me a moron because I said the Oilers had played at a .733 pace their previous 15 games and not .900, and says "Yeah one more win would have put them at a 900 clip." Actually, i more win would have brought them to .800 and 2 more wins to .866. But anyway, I suggest we just forget about him and his useless rants.

Most others in here can have arguments back and forth - citing our opinions (and that's what they are, really, just opinions - doesn't make any of us right or wrong - just the way we see it) without flippant insults.

I regret being hauled down to his level of the garbage bin and should have done what I suggest elsewhere to others and ignored him right from the get-go. Ahh well, Live and learn.

vince, an "expert" like you should know it...

George ... Did you notice that since Pete has been showing up, Jimmy has disappeared, and that both seem to have the same vocabulary? Things that make you go Hmmmm!!!
Festus, 2008-03-29 16:58:56

George, clearly you cannot take critizim. Lets close all this off by merely asking now that Neil is back how well did your boy McGrattan do? Afterall thats what started all of this. Your diatribe about how McGrattan is underrated and a better all around hockey player, he just doesn't get the ice time. Niel takes stupid penalties at inopportune times etc. etc. Well George, your boy McGrattan did not get a single point, in fact he hasn't had a point since mid December. Keep this in mind your way to the Juvie prison in Ottawa, as thats where your headed with your name calling and rehtoric, Neil is a much better hockey player than a goon named McGrattan. Now just admit it was an assinine statement and move on.
Pete, 2008-03-29 09:14:21

George the moron and Mel the clown, I said near a 900 clip if you can read. As usual you see what you want and again are wrong. Yeah one more win would have put them at a 900 clip.
Pete, 2008-03-29 08:36:01

Norbit, I had to look out the window to make sure there weren't two moons in the sky. I mean, here is Pete The Vile buttering you up, ostensibly looking for allies.

Pete - over the past 15 games the Oilers played at a fantastic .733 clip, taking 22 out of a possible 30 points. Incredible as that was, it wasn't close to .900. Again, Pete: 1 + 1 = 2; 4 x 2 = 8.
George O'Leary, 2008-03-28 19:12:11

Norbit

I'm fully aware for

Prongers status. Plus even when he was an oil I said he was a dirty cheap player that gets away with lots. The fact remains that it still took what two years to get the team to start winning after Pronger left. Plus our defence has been pritty pitiful. How many times has rollie or garon been run over or pushed around and not one of those guys does anything?
