When was the last time the Oilers, Flames, and Canucks all missed the playoffs in the same season? Answer - Not since all 3 of these teams were together in the NHL has this ever happened. At least one of these teams has always been in the playoffs in a season. Add in the Winnipeg Jets missing and it's even more amazing how awful Western Canada's teams have been. Hard to believe, isn't it? At least Toronto can't talk smack.
