Is it worth it to tank?

1st overall picks: RNH, Hall, Tavares, Stamkos, P. Kane, EJ, Crosby, Ovechkin, Fleury, Nash, Kovalchuk, Dipietro
2nd overall picks: Landeskog, Seguin, Hedman, Doughty, JVR, J. Staal, Ryan, Malkin, E. Staal, Lehtonen, Spezza, Heatley
3rd overall picks: Huberdeau, Gudbranson, Duchene, Bogosian, Turris, Toews, JJ, Barker, Horton, Bouwmeester, Svitov, Gaborik
4th overall picks: Larsson, Johansen, E. Kane, Pietrangelo, Hickey, Backstrom, Pouliot, Ladd, Zherdev, Pitkanen, Weiss, Klesla
5th overall picks: Strome, Neiderreiter, B. Schenn, L. Schenn, Alzner, Kessel, Price, Wheeler, Vanek, Whitney, Chistov, Torres

Moral of the story, if you're not picking top 2/3, **** tanking.

Also note that a defensemen is literally NEVER the best pick out of the top 5 in the 11 years looked at here.
