Probably not another 3rd Period collapse- that would bring us closer to some type of organizational change. No, the worst outcome is a narrow victory, buying management more time to do nothing.
Ah, paradoxes. Wish for wins, or wish for losses to bring more wins in the future.
Win or lose, management isn't going to do a damned thing because Checketts is a basketball guy who doesn't understand the intricacies of hockey, JD seems to only care about making sure Jarmo drafts middle-tier defensemen, Pleau is riding out his time before he retires, and Armstrong is too pussy to tell any of them that since it's going to be his team in a few months, he wants to start putting his mark on it by firing Murray and hiring someone who will actually not suck at coaching this team of young, talented athletes.
By the deadline, watch for Perron, Berglund, Pietrangelo, Junland, Cole and Backes all to be dangled and/or traded for washed up vets and later round draft picks.
