Well, thats the thing, I see no use in tanking. Competing helps now and in the long run, everyone in hockey knows this. You can't just let youngsters who will be part of the team for many years get thrown to the wolves. Even small steps help this early in their careers. The vets I could care less about, but they're not worthless, the youngsters need them around.

Assuming we keep our pick, whether its a top ten or top 20 pick our scouts have been doing a good job. Hall or Seguin would be nice, but lets not tank, earn those losses
