im not crazy about tanking. I am not crazy about giving up high draft picks for rentals either. Short term? sure fine. but doing it year after year? it eventually catches up with you.
There is a reason why people want the Flyers to hold onto draft picks. Outside of the obvious top 4 or 5 the talent pool is pretty thin. you want to be able to call up guys who can step ind play. and im not talking about AHL/NHL tweeners and 4th line grinders.
But this organization and many in its fanbase think that if you arent spending to within a nickle of the cap you arent trying to win.
