I think we're too close to opening a window where this team can be competitive to really think about tanking at this point. The Stars need to be looking at a deep playoff run by the latest at three years from now, otherwise the team will end up losing guys like Benn and Eriksson when their contracts run out.
Years of absolutely failure, plus wasted peak years, do not really tend to either attract free agents or compel your own players to resign.
This team needs to learn how to win, hopefully sign some decent free agents within the next 1-2 years, and cross their collective fingers that guys like Oleksiak, Dillon, etc. continue to pan out. And if all of that does work out, this team could be very good pretty soon.
But I really don't think that a season of "Oh don't worry lads, it's okay if you totally fail, this season is a write-off" is going to help the cause. And by saying "oh no, we're coaching for NEXT season," you're basically saying that.
