But at this point of the season, it is pretty clear that this upcoming 7 games is going to give us a good idea of exactly how good this team is, and what if any moves would need to be done at the deadline.
Of course those games in march and april are just as important if not more then any, but we would not be able to add any pieces to the puzzle, which aren't already part of our system.
I really don't think this "stretch" is going to tell us anything about our team that we don't already know. At this point, we're well aware of the flaws and strengths of this roster. If the team falters, it's not going to be for any surprising reason. If the team excels, it's not going to be for any surprising reason.
If Anisimov, Richards and Dubinsky suddenly start scoring, does that change the fact that we still need more offensive depth on the roster? No. If Eminger comes back and plays like a good #6D, does that change the fact that our defensive corps could stand to be improved? No.
In reality, what I'd be looking for, in terms of the deadline and beyond our current needs, is whether or not anyone gets injured in the next few weeks. It's far more likely that we'll need to plug a temporary hole than it is likely that something fundamental will change about the team's roster needs.
