Oilers Fading From The Playoff Race

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,

There’s a website called SportsClubStats which usually gets a lot of use in the second half of pro sports season. It computerizes, by percentage, each team’s mathematical chances of making the playoffs.

Guess what the Oilers chances are this morning?

On October 30th.

You ready for this?

They’re 2.8%.

That’s better than only one other team, the Buffalo Sabres at 1.3%.

In the media room, as the final minutes were ticking off the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers, one writer asked how much time remained.

One wag responded “68 games.”
