I apologize... "Tanking" wasn't the best use of words.

What I meant was to simply sell some of our older assets (Jagr, Briere)... NOT TIMONEN. And in the process of getting rid of Jagr and Briere, I thought it would bring our team down to a higher draft position than we would get if we keep those 2.

I didn't mean to intentionally lose games or to trade guys away for nothing just to improve our draft slot.

I just meant that naturally, trading away guys like Briere + Jagr would likely leave us with a higher draft pick.
