Oh don't get me wrong, I'm fine with giving our spots to kids. In fact, I would be content with scrapping all the vets (minus Hank,Dats and Kronners) and playing all kids/prospects.
However to me, this is one in the same as tanking it ala the Buffalo Sabres route.
Glad we're on the same page!
If you think that squad would "Tank" then I think you need a lesson in talent analysis...
