28. Edmonton Oilers
Previous: No. 27
I can’t see this struggle continuing all year, but the Oilers have earned being in the bottom of the power rankings with their play so far this year. Their 7-9-2 record this year includes a 4-6-0 record at home. They have only scored 46 goals in their 18 games this year, good enough for last in the NHL in goals per game average.
With the talent they have all around their roster, you can’t expect this team to stay down forever, but the question is how long will it last? If the Oilers can’t get out of this funk soon, they will have a lot of catching up to do in the second half of the season.
