If we're not signing Semin or doing a big trade, then we're on a collision course with a lottery pick.
but if that's what you think the potential of our current roster is, then what need is there to "tank"?
If we're headed to a lottery pick as it is, there would be no reason for any systematic attempts at "tanking", we could just let the players/coaches compete to their best and live with the lottery-pick spot it gives us.
personally, i don't see how you can extrapolate a 12-15 ranking for our current roster... unless your projection is based on yet another nightmare injury season.
otherwise, adding a healthy Markov/gionta, older Subban/Maxpac/Eller/DD/emelin/diaz & the grit factor Prust/Armstrong/Bouillion add to the group, can't be considered a "downgrade" from the season we had last year.
