If my teams GM, Coach or Players said that we should tank. I would say they have to go. You can't say you want to lose. Never. That's stupid! They're paid to win and at least they have to try.
We as fans can hope we tank. I hope we get as high pick as possible, but I don't want my team to release statement that we want to tank. If we lose and get good pick that is only positive thing this season. If you get rid of dead weight for sake of getting good assets, that just wise. Burke couldn't do that because at the TDD we were still in the race. Not anymore, so we play out the season with team we have. I hope that we get best pick possible, but at the same time I'll wait that they do their best on the ice. That's the purpose, not losing. Good pick is just one positive outcome of terrible season.
