Boo hoo! Cry me a river. Someone tell this guy to learn how to make better trades as a GM, learn how to use the waiver process properly so that you don't lose players like Corrado, and other duties as a GM.


This guy doesn't have the guts, the cohones, to walk into the dressing room and tell Willie and the players to tank the five remaining games.

This may sound unconventional, but heck, if I was GM for a day I would send a clear message to the team about the blueprint this franchise needs to do a proper rebuild.

-My speech to the players and the coaching staff in the locker room: "Guys, you played a heck of a game in the Shark Tank. Way to go. What I am about to say to you is part of my vision for rebuilding this team. I want you guys to tank the remaining five games of this season. We need to lose these games, especially those two games against Edmonton. Why the tank job? It's simple. We are rebuilding this team to be a competitive, championship contender through the draft. It's a deep draft year as you may know. We have a great chance to get a top 3 draft pick IF we lose all our remaining games this season.

I need your help in order to make this vision for this team's future to happen. Yes, I understand that these words are hard to swallow. You have been through a rough season. As professional athletes, it is not in your DNA to lose games on purpose. It's about being professional and working hard every day to play hard to try to win every game.

However, I ask you to help me build this team through my vision of drafting elite players for rebuilding the Canucks into contenders. We win for this team by losing these 5 games.

Guys, please tank and lose these last 5 games! Fuck Toronto! Fuck Edmonton! They are not getting any more first overall picks in the draft. We are all Canucks! Let's tank as Canucks to try to get that first overall pick!
We lose to win!"
good april fools joke

Toronto and Buffalo tanked, but they did so by icing sub-par teams on purpose (Buffalo last season, Toronto this season), not asking their players to intentionally lose.

Bo scores!

Initial reaction:
Then

Is there a softer line in the NHL than McCann-Granlund-Vey? And we're playing them against Getzlaf's line? Quality tank coaching, Willie
