Look at it as each lost can potentially get you a better prospect.
Aside from the top 4, all the prospects from 5-15 are essentially equal.

OMG, instead of Virtanen, we may get stuck with Ritchie or Tuch ... Oh no!

Nikolaj Ehlers, who is projected to be a mid-to-late 1st round pick?

Tank to go off the board

QMJHL Network
I've seen him play. I watch the Sportsnet junior games frequently. I've also seen a lot of the other prospects play.

Scouts have also, I'm guessing, watched him play. Thus, I assume they know what they're talking about when they project him to be a mid-to-late 1st round pick.

If you want Ehlers, he'll still be there regardless of where we finish if we miss the playoffs. Worst we can pick is 13th (as NJD picks 30th).

Why? The article reports he appears to wants to stay with the Hurricanes organization as president. It's similar to Pratt thinking MG would step aside from GM duties and hire Naslund as GM, even though the president would still oversee all decisions.

Give it a rest already, we get your point

Try telling 25 top level competitive guys to not go out there and try to win games. Good luck. Even when a team is down 7-1 with 3 minutes left in the game, most guys are going out and playing hard shifts. Top athletes are wired to give it everything, even when the chips are down.

You don't understand that because you don't have that compete level that a pro athlete has.

To add, no one's going to tank if they have to keep their value up.

Players don't tank, -ever- especially in the NHL

Teams tank via managements decisions on who to play, I highly doubt you'll ever find a pro athlete who tanks on purpose even if the motivation was purely monetary

Pro teams/players have admitted to throwing playoff games for money in Europe. Wouldn't shock me at all if they were paid to throw regular season games.

North America is another story, however.

Mike Danton wrote a piece about it in his blog about playing in Kazakhstan.
Quote:
When the players, past and present, found out I was writing a blog about my time in Kazakhstan, I was bombarded with facebook messages and emails insisting that I add their stories to my blog. I could not do that, as I had no proof of what they were saying. I do not want to start rumours; I want to state facts. However, one story involving my previous team was very interesting. After confirming the story with multiple sources from both teams involved, I am deciding to add it to my blog. A couple of years ago, Beibarys was playing Arystan in the playoffs. The Arystan players were supposed to receive a bonus for reaching the playoffs, however, travelling to Beibarys by plane was very expensive for the team. Therefore, the Arystan and Beibarys coaches got together (as they are friends) and came to an agreement. Arystan already had to travel to Beibarys for the first two games of the series. So, Arystan told their players to purposely lose all four games so they would not have to travel back to Atyrau by plane again. If Arystan did not comply, they would not receive their playoff bonus as it would go to support the cost of the teams travel back to Atyrau. Instead, if Arystan lost all four games, they would receive their playoff bonus from their team as well as receive $1000 from Atyrau. Therefore, Beibarys paid off Arystan players and coaches $1000 each to purposely lose playoff games. That story was confirmed by players from both Beibarys and Arystan.

Lucic went looking for Emelin near the end of the 3rd, jabbing him in the nuts with his stick

war of attrition when playing the bruins

it is all game theory when it comes to playing dirty.
everyone does it to some degree because they are at a disadvantage if they do not.

but at what point does everyone stop and mutually agree that enough is enough. for a start: this is where the league and officials need to solidify there stance

Textbook hip check imo. Beautiful to watch. Nothing against Luc, but he's an idiot for saying all that with the video evidence backing up Emelin.

There's a difference between caring and meddling with hockey decisions that he has no business making.

I wish Gagliardi had bought the team. What we know now, I believe that Aqualini did go behind his back and purchase the Canucks from the other 2.

Late in 2003, Gaglardi, Beedie and Aquilini came together to launch a joint ownership bid for the Canucks, who were then owned by Seattle-based John McCaw. Aquilini subsequently left the group and in November 2004 bought the Canucks and Rogers Arena, then called General Motors Place.

Not defending aquilini but what exactly has Gaglardi and the Dallas stars has accomplished or made the team stronger in the past years?

Sometimes I feel Canucks fans has been spoiled for too many years.
