Basically, to be in real contention for playoffs at the deadline, they need to earn 64 points in the next 49 games which is about a 107 point pace. That kind of pace is top 5 in the NHL over the past few years. Do they really have the potential to be a top 5 team between now and the deadline. It's so bad now that a loss on Saturday, means they'd need a 109 point pace to make up the difference, or a 112 point pace if they lose the next 2.

Without a winning streak of at least 3 games in the next week or two, the season is done and even with a 3 game streak starting Saturday, they'd need a 103 point pace, from there to March.
