Numbers don’t lie.
The Calgary Flames are one of the best teams in the west, while the Oilers are out of the playoff picture despite having a stupid easy schedule.
That’s insane to think about. Anyone who has played the game know how hard back to backs are, especially with the travel in the NHL. (this isn’t the MLB…)
There’s no hiding the fact that the Oilers have a ton of skill, but if you don’t have a backbone, you ain’t making playoffs against the big boys. Their game against LA proved my thoughts exactly. Congrats to RNH and Leon on hat tricks against a drastically under performing team, while the organization continues to celebrate personal bests to hide the fact that they’re behind teams in the standings who’ve battled major injuries all season. It’s going to take massive changes to turn this organization around. Take a look down the QE2 at Calgary.
