It's a short season, we could tolerate it for 48 games. Do it Jersey style. Top-5 pick one year, next year SCF. Grab our future #1C in the 2013 draft (Mackinnon/Barkov/Lindholm/Monahan) and then go back at it in a haze of glory in 2014!
I'm with you on the tank! I'd rather have one terrible year than be a team that's a fringe contender for the foreseeable future. The 2013 draft is stacked at the top. Get a Top 10 pick and trade Boyle/Clowe/Murray for some draft picks, youth, and better bottom six talent. Use salary from Boyle to sign a Top 6 forward next season. We'll be in much better position to contend in the future.
