What are we going to miss about Foote and Fedorov considering that had less than 20 games left on this team anyways?

Maybe our chance at making the playoffs has gone from 10% to 8%...big deal, we got something rather than riding out the season and getting nothing. We are 5 points out and most teams near us in the standings have a game in hand on us. If a game in hand is worth an estimated 1 point, then we're 6 points out with 17 to go. If every win gets you 1 point closer in the standings, then we need to win the next 6 to get back on the bubble, then play at least .500 in the last 11 to get in.

So we need to go at least 12-5(putting us at 91 points) to have any chance. The odds are seriously against it, and I doubt Foote and Fedorov would have made a difference. When the Richards deal fell through, or rather when Dallas offered something we couldn't(a top goalie), Howson turned into a seller and I'm fine with that.
