I am interested to know because I can see Montreal starting to "sell" as early as the holiday trade freeze in December if things continue this way and possibly even ask some players to waive there NMC's (no movement clauses).
"tanking" is an HF term. NHL teams don't really do it. A team that is well out of the playoffs in January February will try and move some of it's expiring contracts...but that's totally different than this unrealistic concept taht keeps getting thrown around.

Do you think last year's Oilers were "tanking" to get Ryan Hopkins? Do you honestly think that they were PLANNING to finish last?
