But it'll appease the fans.

It's just a shame that the fans never want what's best for this team.
The fundamental difference between those teams that consistently sucked to get two or three great top picks and ours (with the exception of Edmonton), is that it got to the point where NOBODY cared about Hockey in those cities, no outcry over coaches and GM's being fired, no outcry over lackluster effort from veteran players, etc.

The "Fail for Nail" must be embraced by the fans, sadly, I don't think it will happen.... We will see another year of subpar hockey, but not bad enough for anything of substance to happen....

The playoffs are a distant memory this season folks, there are only two options left, go with whats gotten you here now (chance at a top pick) or another middling season of 12th or 13th in the conference and the 7th or 8th overall.....
