In hockey even if you don't think you can make the playoffs, teams that aren't the worst of the worst tend to fight to the end.
I don't see this happening in Hockey, unless Mario Lemiuex is being drafted that year. Are seriously saying that a 9th-12th place team in March will tank and miss the PO for a 1in 14 chance at no. one overall? This is just idiotic.
