Pittsburgh might disagree. They tanked for years to collect top picks. So did Chicago.
Two best teams now...

Once they trade Fedotenko (for sure), Gagne (possibly), Gervais and/or Foster (if anyone is that desperate for D depth), give Knuble away for futures (to be nice since no one took him on waivers). Heck, I'd give serious consideration to trading Timonen too, positioned as mercy for him to get him to waive. Talbot can go for a 1st.

Bring up some Phantoms. Dress Huskins, Lilja in the top 4. Let Leighton play. The tank will take care of itself. If the moron coach won't do it, fire him right now and let Paddock oversee the tank.

Without Coburn and Meszaros, and Grossmann this week, there is no way we can make the playoffs, let alone compete with a good team once we get there. Are two home dates worth missing out on Jones/McKinnon/Drouin? No.
