- We would probably lose in the first or second round and get another mid to late first round pick

I would rather see...

- Montreal get a top 12 pick and draft a Dal Colle, Ritchie or Perlini
- Flip Markov, Gionta, Moen, Bouillon, Murray and Diaz for draft picks
- Continue to build around our core and draft more McCarron's, Fucale's, Collberg's and De La Rose's next year and beyond

Discuss!
yes........

Good lord... the team is 1 game above .500 and just finished the toughest part of our schedule (playing against the West). We're 3-1 vs the East so our record will likely improve and no other East team has played vs the West as often as we did.

We had good pieces without tanking... Subban, Pacioretty, Eller, Gallagher, Markov (drafted a while ago I know), Plekanec.

I am glad we got Galchenyuk but wtf is wrong with you people and this losing mentality.

Since we got galchenyuk i've had my share of tanking, i think we can start playing hockey now. Gallagher, Price, Subban, Tinordi, Eller, Emelin, Bournival, Beaulieu, Patch and Galchenyuk is a good young core as any to build a contender.

Pittsburgh and Chicago weren't intentionally bad. They got over the hump by overpaying vets too, not by entirely building through the draft and trading everyone over 30. There is no cup in Chicago/Pittsburgh without Campbell, Hossa, Scuderi, Gill, Guerin, Gonchar, etc. Getting Versteeg and Sharp for practically free also immensely helped Chicago. Our Amateur scouts managed to do a similar thing with getting Bournival for absolutely nothing. Let's hope Holland becomes a player too.

I think we need to start scheduling our daily "Should We Tank?" threads, the same way we schedule GDTs.

And then we need a walk-in Psychotherapy Clinic. Geez, you guys need some fun in your lives...

I think making the playoffs should still be the goal for this team for this season. The young core we have is good and reinforcements are still on the way. The players who are on the team need to have a winning mentality as they take on growing roles for the seasons to come.

As far as deadline trading goes though I'm not against getting young assets/picks in minor deals but Gio and Markov are not the right guys to move unless things go absolutely terribly from here on out.

We may miss the playoffs, but we won't be tanking for a top-3 pick. There are some terrible teams out there. Even if we miss the playoffs, it won't be much.

Does a #12 pick instead of a #18 pick really justify missing the playoffs?

Of course I want my team to make the playoffs. What a silly question. Draft picks are so overrated on these boards, it's not even funny.

Yeah! I hope we miss the playoff. I also can't believe Bergevin still hasn't traded Galchenyuk and Subban. They are getting old and are slowly losing value... If we trade them now for a couple good picks we could have a good team for so many years!

If we can get a filip Forsberg for a martin erat or a McDo for a Gomez, go for it but this is not a tanking team.

I would rather make the playoffs then pick mid first round, that has yielded us **** **** all, if you're going to lose you gotta get a top 3 pick like we did in galchenyuk

I take it you're not a season-ticket holder?

I'm sure those who are, would very much welcome the idea of watching a team that would be intentionally primed to miss the playoffs.

I always want to make the playoffs.

However, I would hope that even if we make the playoffs that management realizes that we cannot win they way we are currently constructed. There needs to be some changes made, especially with the defense.

Making the playoffs, is the best way to allow younger players to grow. It allows them to be part of something that is unlike anything else. NHL playoffs> every other major sport that has playoffs.
