Five reasons the Oilers aren’t for real

Five reasons the Oilers aren’t for real

A month ago, I gave five reasons why the Oilers were for real. They were 9-4-1 at that time. They’ve gone 9-8-3 since, a respectable record but a bit of a step back.

The problem is their overall results aren’t good enough, especially at even-strength, and they’ve been trending downwards for a while.
