Do you want Stamkos?

Would you want to tank this season and possibly land him in the draft?

assuming tavares isnt allowed in this draft, id take Doughty with the #1 pick.

That kid is going to be a norris winner in this league.

We are seriously OK with tanking? I guess i'm in the minority but I feel as though you fight till the end no matter what!

Why would you tank the season for Patrick Traverse? I mean, I'm sure Dallas will give him to you for future considerations...

Man almost worse than people on the Isles board. It's 7 games into the season people need to relax. It's oct not january

that doesn't make much sense.

if we're "down and out" and you mean "really out" by january, then how do we end up in 10th place? That would mean there's 5 teams even more REALLY OUT behind us.

For us to be considered "REALLY OUT" as early as January, we'd have to be so far behind everyone else that finishing 10th wouldn't even be within our reach. And even if we're somehow in last place by January, this team wouldn't tank. We've got a very strong team. When Gomez settles into his role and finds the right linemates, when Jagr gets going, when Shanny's shots start popping in, when the powerplay starts clicking, when Avery gets healthy, when Staal gets 35 NHL games under his belt, when Lundqvist... oh wait, he's a brick wall. How can you honestly be worried at this point? Have you guys never lived through a bad streak before? The season just started. Relax.

Even if we brought up the entire AHL forward and defense and played them in front of Lundqvist, we'd make the playoffs. That's why threads like these are obnoxious 7 games into the season. This team will hit stride and be fine. Have some patience, please.

This team won't tank for one reason: Lundqvist. He doesn't like to lose, period

Damn, I thought I was jumping ship, this but this way too soon to even talk about this. If you want to start an a 2008 Draft thread in October that's fine.

Till then, nothing good will come of this, and frankly, its embarrassing.
