After the disaster in Regina, we have the following schedule for the next four games.
Note also that not one of the games for the next two months are on a weekend. They are all on Thursday, Friday, or Monday!
I stated before the season started that I would be thrilled if the Eskies went 3-2 through July. I also did not think we would beat Toronto until I changed my mind a few days before the game on a hunch.
To go 3-2 from this point, we'd have to sweep Winnipeg and that's a tall order.
Essentially whatever is done with the offence, the good news is that in playing Winnipeg and Saskatchewan again through six games, the offence does not have to be great but rather only above average and free of mistakes like against Toronto.
The game against BC next Friday night might as well be used as an experiment for the offence and as if it were a pre-season, as we are overmatched all-around and have little to lose.
Let's see what Reed retools to focus on Winnipeg and Saskatchewan for the most part.
If someone key is hurt, that's the game to let them rest off roster on the one-week injured list to let someone else on that list get some playing time.
