Miracles? How about just not getting worse.
Brutal goaltending for the first 20games really sunk this team, and for the short term, that issue has been solved. If Scrivens re'signs, and Bryz re-signs or a capable back up is brought in, goaltending issues are then solved for the next few seasons.

With Dubnyk out, and Hendricks in, the team has played way better. He's definitely not the guy to save us, but you can see the way the Oilers played in those last 10games before the Olympics, their play was much improved.

Its all baby steps, and they're steps in the right direction
