In Topic: Is tanking the right move?

1: No.  We do not tank.  We are the Devils.  It annoys me that so many here feel that we should.

 

2. The NBA draft is almost incomparable to the NHL draft.  Theirs has more depth, you have a better chance of picking up real talent in 2nd+3rd rounds, whereas the NHL draft is front-loaded with talent; thus why you rarely see teams trading 1sts

 

edit sp

There is no third round in the NBA draft.

Honestly the best situation for this team's long term success is to absolutely tank. Sell off as many veterans as possible at the deadline, and bring in a coach that can develop young talent.


True. But this won't even help without a complete house cleaning in the scouting department. Conte has been living on past glory for way too long. Years of horrible drafts have left this team with the dearth of talent it is suffering from. In this regard they are the NY Giants on ice.
