No, it's not.

Tanking is blowing games to gain a high draft pick.

Rebuilding is committing your team to a youth movement in an attempt to restructure the team's core to better compete in the long term. Attaining high draft picks is an added benefit of rebuilding simply because of the youth and inexperience of your new core.

Tanking rarely happens in the NHL. Rebuilding happens often, and there is nothing wrong with it. Some times there is no other choice than to rebuild.
