This. I know you all don't consider LA to be a tanker, but I remember just how horrendous they were in 07-08 (That was the season I went to my first ever game at the Tank, it was against the Kings and I think Eric Ersberg or something). They had three consecutive top-5 picks, which constitutes tanking. I know one busted (Hickey) and they traded the other (B. Schenn) but the fact was that they got them, Doughty turned out to be a Norris-caliber defenseman, and Schenn got them their #2C.
