2016 Edmonton Oilers Qualifying Tournament

Here is a little description of each team in the tourney:

  1. ’83-’84 Edmonton Oilers (57-18-5, 119 points (1st in Smythe), STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS, 1.50 SRS)
  2. ’84-’85 Edmonton Oilers (49-20-11, 109 points (1st in Smythe), STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS, 1.25 SRS)
  3. ’86-’87 Edmonton Oilers (50-24-6, 106 points (1st in Smythe), STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS, 1.06 SRS)
  4. ’87-’88 Edmonton Oilers (44-25-11, 99 points (2nd in Smythe), STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS, 0.91 SRS)
  5. ’89-’90 Edmonton Oilers (38-28-14, 90 points (2nd in Smythe), STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS, 0.42 SRS)
  6. ’81-’82 Edmonton Oilers (48-17-15, 111 points (1st in Smythe), Lost in Division Semifinal, 1.33 SRS)
  7. ’82-’83 Edmonton Oilers (47-21-12, 106 points (1st in Smythe), Lost in Stanley Cup Final, 1.26 SRS)
  8. ’85-’86 Edmonton Oilers (56-17-7, 119 points (1st in Smythe), Lost in Division Final, 1.25 SRS)

The ’83-’84 Edmonton Oilers were the 5th seed in the inaugural Ultimate NHL Playoff. Their tournament came to an end a little earlier than I had thought when they were swept by the 4th-seeded ’73-’74 Boston Bruins in the Quarterfinal. Then, in the Second Annual UNP, it was the ’84-’85 Edmonton Oilers who were the 6th seed and were able to surpass what the ’83-’84 Oilers did in the inaugural tournament as they finished as the runners up.

Players to Watch:

The tournament results will be posted on the next weekday at 1 pm EST!
