Weiss would have to wake up, Versteeg come back on fire reuniting their line giving us 2 awesome lines, and Markstrom come in and light up the league. We need all those stars to allign for a 7 game winning streak; an unlikely scenario.
With Marky playing I look forward to going to the games and watching our youngn grow.
Very true AG, Markstrom and the Kid Line are glimpses of what the team will be for years to come. What is the hold up with Versteeg? Weiss just looks lost mentally, that fight didn't seem to help at all. Our offense is decent enough that if we get decent defending and goaltending there is still some hope for playoffs, enter the ALIEN landing!!!!
Markstrom may be able to steal us some wins but like I said in another post, getting 34-40pts out of a possible 52pts OR winning 17-20 of our remaining 26 (whatever way you compute it) looks very unrealistic.
I really hope Bjugstad can crack the lineup next year, his size is not a worry as it was with Huberdeau. I know it would be a longshot but I think he could benefit from watching the Kid Line work their butts off.

As most have already touched on, this is a blessing in disguise. The season is pretty well lost already and while I join my fellow fans in wishing Theo a speedy recovery and a wholehearted thank you for helping to end the playoff curse last year, I look forward to finally bringing Markstrom in full time. This is his team now going forward.
