Tanking alone is not sufficient to build a contender.
You also need good drafting, decent trades and UFA acquisition. Right now Edmonton is trying to win by tanking and only tanking, that is why it will take a long time for them to make the playoffs.
Both Columbus and Florida are improving.
BTW, do you think Columbus was trying to tank when they traded Voracek and Couturier for Carter, when they signed Propsal and Wisniewski? I thought they were trying to make the playoffs.
