I think it's pretty stupid that they still win games.
You're not going to the playoffs, why win and give up the 30th spot?
We however, still have a decent shot of making the playoffs, and once you go in, anything can happen. We could hit a hot streak. Another team could hit a cold streak, or have injuries to key players. Just because we're unlikely to win the cup doesn't mean we don't try to get it.
Players don't take the ice thinking 'hmm, we suck so let me/us purposely let the other team win'. No they go out there to compete cause that's what athletes do...
However the organization may think differently.
Right now only Edmonton is a guarantee lottery team. Toronto (really the Bruins pick) and Carolina are capable of winning games. and they have.
