Great to see the team get another win. Glad to see the team not pushing the losing culture on the call-ups. I just don't get the calls to tank.
I'm with you. I'm naive and just expect the team to "go out and do their best" no matter how far out of the race, but I wouldn't fight it. You'll just get into the whole "we could have had Steven Stamkos but because we won meaningless games we got Colin Wilson, etc...." My advice is just try to ignore it and root how you want.
I don't actively want us to lose, but at this point in the season when we are obviously not going to make the play offs and we obviously need to restructure our forwards I'm OK with it if we do lose.
With that said, it's entertaining as **** when we win.
I get that, and I could SORT OF get on board with losing if I thought it would be a huge benefit in the draft- at the end of the last season I did think losing would greatly benefit us..... But this year?? To move 2 or 3 spots and pick 6th instead of 9th? No way I am rooting for losses for that......
