It would appear not:

     -c cipher_spec
             Selects the cipher specification for encrypting the session.

             Protocol version 1 allows specification of a single cipher.
The supported values are ``3des'', ``blowfish'', and ``des''.  3des
(triple-des) is an encrypt-decrypt-
             encrypt triple with three different keys.  It is believed to be
secure.  blowfish is a fast block cipher; it appears very secure and is much
faster than 3des.  des is
             only supported in the ssh client for interoperability with
legacy protocol 1 implementations that do not support the 3des cipher.  Its
use is strongly discouraged due
             to cryptographic weaknesses.  The default is ``3des''.

             For protocol version 2, cipher_spec is a comma-separated list
of ciphers listed in order of preference.  The supported ciphers are:
3des-cbc, aes128-cbc, aes192-cbc,
             aes256-cbc, aes128-ctr, aes192-ctr, aes256-ctr, arcfour128,
arcfour256, arcfour, blowfish-cbc, and cast128-cbc.  The default is:

                   aes128-cbc,3des-cbc,blowfish-cbc,cast128-cbc,arcfour128,
                   arcfour256,arcfour,aes192-cbc,aes256-cbc,aes128-ctr,
                   aes192-ctr,aes256-ctr
