First off - Grapes - it's way too late to call for Alfie to be traded. That's so 2-4 months ago.
The Sens play the Wild tonight who are on a bit of a slump after winning only 2 of their past 7. Afterwards, the team plays 10 games where only Carolina is more than 2 games over 0.500. A great chance to put up some Ws and get back in the top 8 in the East. We are only 5 pts behind Washington who sits 8th.
Or, another way of looking at it....
How many stretches like this are there? If they don't make up the ground they've lost then we're screwed!
