Actually, if you bother to read what I've written over the past several weeks ... I've never said I was against us getting a top five pick. I have commented against tanking to do it and repeatedly mentioned my dislike for cheering against our team. Play to win every night, PERIOD. I've also pointed out that the teams cited by others as benefiting from an early pick to win a Cup had much more than one early pick to do it ... never that any number of early picks results in a Cup win .. hence the mention of teams such as Tampa, Edmonton, and Washington.
