We’ll be taking a closer look at each player for the Edmonton Oilers so far this season and grading them if they are trending below expectations.
Edmonton Oilers: Well, we’re officially at the halfway mark, so let’s see how our players are doing. Who’s part of the solution and who’s part of the problem? Let’s find out together.
Will the Edmonton Oilers make the playoffs this year? American Thanksgiving is supposedly considered the mark to behold as teams that hold a playoff spot by then have a 78% chance to make the playoffs. Now that was before the Oilers went on a tear and became the 2nd hottest team in the league for a while with a seven-game win streak and 14 point bump in the standings, so hey like I said to expect the unexpected.
Anyway, let’s get to it. We’ve already covered two categories so far: those trending up and those standing pat. Just for kicks, there are a few players who we can’t judge so I’ll mention them as well. We’ll start with the players trending down.
