It's time to tank the season

This is not a good hockey team, this is a given. Any hope a small market team has of winning the cup has to be based on drafting high and well for a few years. Pittsburgh went from basement to Stanley Cup winners with a franchise pick and a few years of top five selections. Ottawa has had the potential for the same (perhaps missing that one stud player).

With the growing prospect of next year's play wiped out via lockout, the last place team(s) this year may be in the hunt for selecting BOTH Ovechkin and Crosby (depending how the league chooses to draft in the absence of a season). It's hard to root against the Sabres and/or the Bills, but the bottom line is not just being in the game it's actually winning the big one once in our lives.
