But I guess if it makes you sleep better and night to not call that tanking, so be it. lol.
there is a huge difference between "tanking"(ie deliberately losing) and utilizing an opportunity to get some youth on the ice for NHL games. If we were "tanking" do you really think Rinne would be playing BTB games?
Fisher apparently has a nagging injury that if this had been an 82 game season he would have sat out for a couple of months but tried to gut it out. Gaustad has been back and forth on IR all season. There is no reason for either of them to play again this year. Thats not "tanking" that smart asset management.
