Tanking is playing Clune 1st line minutes. It's taking a healthy SWeber out of the lineup. Etc. Kids playing against other teams that are outta' it, or playing instead of banged up Fish - not the same thing. There is no reason a guy that's injured should be out there with the potential to get hurt worse. There is no reason Rinne should be playing back-to-back (shouldn't have been anyway). Tanking is an attitude that 'it's ok to lose' - and that is never ok.
