You should have been thanking us when we were 30th in the NHL.
We are now 22nd, and moving up.
I think we will be in our familiar position of middle of the pack by the end of the year. With Greene returning, Torres is our only guy out.
The team is much better with Souray/ Pitkanen/ Moreau/ Pisani/ Hemsky in the lineup.
It is realistic to think we will pass Columbus, Phoenix, NY Islanders, Boston. The Oilers always hit another gear when times get desperate.
If the Oilers do finish 18th, I think the Penner signing was worth it. After a dreadful start, he is really growing on us up here. He is very effective defensively, along the boards, and in front of the net.
