So even if this team isn't the Oilers, we Houstonians that have lived here long enough recognize this pattern. We've seen this before. Sure, there were differences, starting with the colors and logo. But we've seen a pattern close enough to this before to raise red flags.
So when people argue that this team isn't the Oilers, they're right. But that's hardly the point.
