No. 16: Edmonton Oilers

Previous: No. 10

Record: 35-24-9 (79 points)

The young Oilers are being tested right now, as the Pacific has suddenly become very tight and they’re competing with Anaheim, Calgary, Los Angeles and St. Louis for either divisional or wild card spots. Improving their record at Rogers Place will be critical down the stretch, as Edmonton is an entirely blah 16-12-4 when not having to travel.
