It's quite obvious that while not mathematically eliminated by NHL, we are completely out of the race - even if the Ducks win all of their remaining games. So I ask you this, are wins even worth the effort?
I hate when the Ducks lose, no matter what. Which is why I am strongly opposed to tanking for better draft position. Many of you believe that this is the route to take for the rest of the season, in hopes that our draft pick will be playing this time next season and we'll be in the playoffs. I can understand that, but I look at our only reason not to - Teemu Selanne. Do we want to send Teemu out like that?
The Blues are good - duh. While I'm expecting a bloodbath, I think the team's mindset for the rest of the season will be shown tonight. Do they give it 110% against a team that, win or lose, is already in the playoffs? Playing spoiler like we did against San Jose is motivation, but how about now?
