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.
Fisher doesn't have a nagging injury, he simply has an injury that if it wasn't down the stretch and we weren't already missing so many guys, he would be sitting out a couple months type of injury. That's character...

Gaustad has a groin pull and will be out a couple weeks. Whatever is wrong with Wilson is not worth putting at risk again this season.

I agree with PredsV82 though, there is a HUGE difference in tanking (deliberately losing) and simply putting your best available out there, playing hard, and seeing what happens. We are definitely in the second category both in this thread and also on the ice...
