I doubt it. The offense is completely dead, and Calvert and Jenner aren't going to provide enough of a boost to get it to a level to win most nights. This season's "salvation" still lies in Bob hopefully returning to form.
Ironic that even now that the team is in the east, the team's playoff chances are still likely going to die in the same place they died during the western seasons, on a long roadtrip in Western Canada.
Sorry to be so negative. This season has just been hard to watch. Boring hockey and I've had all I can take of Rimer and Bill. I maintain that these loses wouldn't suck half as bad if the team had a competent TV crew.
