Just responding to the thread title: The case of a 1 year surgical tank....

I'm all for it, I compare Montreal's situation to Chicago's of a few year's ago. Montreal drafted a good all round centreman prospect in Galchenyuk 3rd overall (Chicago picked good 2-way centreman Toews). The following year Chicago picked offensive RW/C Patrick Kane 1st overall...(Thus my agreement to go for a surgical 1 year tank) Montreal could tank to get in the bottom 5 lottery and (if need be make a move/trade for 1st overall pick) and draft RW/C Nathan McKinnon 1st overall. Chicago had a strong defensive core, Montreal is building a strong defensive core. The one difference is Montreal has a better goaltending situation than Chicago did when they won the cup.
