Yes, in the sense that management doesn't piss away 1st rounders in order to find a quick fix. Selling AKost and Gill were signs that management accepted to tank. Earlier in the season, the Kaberle trade was an indication that Gauthier still didn't understand the necessity of a tank and the futility of a ''quick fix''.

Sometimes management take it to an extreme and it decides to tank for half a decade, like the Oilers for example.
