Is a "Tank" possible?

We tried to win tonight ~ if we want a top 2 pic, can we deliberately choose to lose with Edm and Columbus behind us?? What does "tanking" a game look like??

Don't get me wrong, I am ALL in favor of pick #1, or #2? But ........ why win for 5th??

You can't 'tank' on purpose. You can't tell your guys to lose.

You can sit out an injured guy like Markov though and you can play your backup goalie a little more.

Give Campoli, Weber, Kaberle ton of ice time and you are guarantee to lose.

We have a hard enough time winning when trying. We don't even have to purposely tank.

I wont lie

There is no tank

Its just a gimmick to make us feel better

But it has its rewards, thinking of a brighter future
