Watch, these 2 pts are going to haunt us in the end.
You know, I sarcastically posted "Enroth just cost us MacKinnon" in chat last night after that big save at the end of regulation. Yet here in the GBU I'm seeing this same sentiment posted seriously. Of course, Enroth, a guy trying to get his career on track, apparently should not make that huge save. Because of draft position.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if your analysis consists of nothing else except "Noooo we won, thus costing us draft position" shouldn't it go in the "tank" thread?

Can't wait until this year is over so I don't have to hear people saying this after every win. And spare me the lecture, I realize the benefits of losing. I'd just like to see some real analysis in the GBU and not read this tired tanking point in 2/3rds of the posts on the first page.
