By the end, we should know what we have, IMO. That, for me anyway, includes the coaching staff, too.
I agree, this upcoming stretch should go a long way to demonstrating which way the rest of the season may be expected to go. A win over Chicago, while perhaps not critical, might reasonably labeled as key, considering how poorly the last two games were played. Another bad loss and the cries of "here we go again" will echo through the halls of HF and the Arena. A win at least gives us some hope for competitive hockey in the near future.

Even next season to me is one with low expectations, but hopefully the season after that they will begin to turn the corner.
This truly is the bottom line for this team.
