Tanking for a pick is a phenomena of fickle fans. No legitimate coaching staff or organization is going to do this. Now does this mean the teams will not write off a season and put a pile of rookies on the ice and let the chips fall where they may? Of course they do. But to intentionally attempt to lose games has legal and other ramifications. Ask Pete Rose he did not do this but was merely betting on games in which he had influence to change the outcome.

There is no circumstance where even a fan can make such suggestions and be take serious. No matter how you want to defend it twist words. Call in the grammer Nazi's flame protest or cry in your beer. Suggesting a team tank leaves ones credibility in question.
