Our beloved Edmonton Oilers are now a pitiful 1-6-1 on the year. Sadly their playoff hopes are already fading especially considering the even longer road trip just around the corner in November. A quick look at the numbers says that the Oil need a .622 winning percentage to reach 95 points and a shot at the playoffs. The Oilers need to stop the bleeding before it is too late. Coach Dallas Eakins has implemented new systems and the players look like they haven’t grasped it as yet which is not good news for anyone.
