They have 44 games left so there is time...I think the next 6 games will go a long way towards determining their fate: at Florida vs Win vs TB vs St.L at Bos Vs Ott That's a relatively easy 10 of 12 points if they play well(like before the 2nd goal last night). If they can get 8-9 points they can gain a bit of ground to possibly 2-3 points. If they only get 5-6 points then it slowly creeps away, 3-4 points and they probably fall 8-10 back.
My hope is either they get hot...then slowly start getting injured guys back providing another boost...OR they keep losing and maximise the return on some veterans and UFA's.
You have hope, I'll give you that. The season is over and it was over long before the Tampa game. Thing is I can't remember the last time I felt the season was over this early in the season. I don't know what to do with myself.
