Play the hand you're dealt. Tanking is never a good idea, especially when you are tanking to get a different playoff matchup. So they get Florida in round 1 then Pitt/NYR/Bos in round two. The road to the Cup is likely going to go through those teams either way.

Obviously I'd rather see them play Florida in the first round, but in the grand scheme of things, I don't think it matters that much since there are three teams they are trying to avoid. If it was just the Pens they are trying to avoid that is a different story, but Boston, NYR, and Pitt are all dangerous and I would be pretty shocked if none of them made it to the second round.
