Oilers better than 15th for sure

Callum Macnab, Edmonton

I am truly shocked that you folks predicted the Oilers to finish at the bottom of the Western Conference in your Yearbook.

"How much difference will Taylor Hall have?'' Well, it's not only Hall, it's also Jordan Eberle, the world junior hero, and it's Magnus Paajarvi, who has been playing with men and was a point-per-game player at the World Championship this spring.

Any team would finish last with 530 man games lost. Would Washington finish first with that kind of setback? I don't think so.

I expect a 10th to 12th place finish, and a better result than Calgary.
