Anyways I'd rather hold out hope and root for us to go 25-9 even if we don't hit it than tank and get a lottery pick. It's much more fun winning.
Winning is fun until the offseason. Where you miss the playoffs, watch as Yakupov, Grigorenko, Galchenyuk, Murray, Forsberg...etc (all the good ones) get drafted by a team not named the Ducks, get excited for free agency only to watch every big name go by until we sign some mid-tier talent at a budget contract because Murray's "had his eye on them" for a while, start the year slow as hell like this year and then go on a late second half tear and maybe or maybe not make the playoffs...yeah let's go ahead and win all these games...
I mean...okay I just re-read that and it sounded bitter...and it all really stems from my hate toward Murray and me wishing he would just go...I don't want to tank...but I don't want to draft as low as possible and miss the playoffs either. That's just lame no matter how you slice it.
