Tanking is never a good idea, especially in a league which has a lottery. At this point, I'd LOvE to take 8th and make a playoff stab at it, and get some time to evaluate at that level.

I enjoy watching hockey when it matters. Right now, 3 points out of 8th, it still matters. It's frustrating, and can drive you straight to the bottle, but it sure beats being a bottom feeder, biding your time for mid-may and praying some ping-pong balls fall your way.
the lottery is a nonfactor. If you dont win it moves you down at most one spot. Sure it would suck to finish 6th this year and then have a team jump you but otherwise its nothing.
