I don't think we're a lock to make the playoffs by any stretch, but I also don't think that we're a worse team. In fact I think we'll be better.

Losing dead weight like Konopka and Carks isn't going to hurt us much, if at all.

I don't think we'll miss Foligno much, but while I don't share the love that many have for him here, I did like him and I do think that we'll miss his jam at times.

Winnie, another hard working grinder type, but the guy has negligible skill, and is one good shot from Lindros land.

I expect Karlsson and Cowen to improve. I expect Methot will stabilize our D. I expect that Phillips will revert to his solid yet underwhelming self with a lesser role (5-6 guy) and I expect our goaltending will be just fine.

It's so tight now that we could be on the outside looking in next April, but my crystal ball is a little cloudy at the moment.

We'll just have to wait and see what happens I guess.
