As Canucks fans stare into the abyss of a potential first round upset, Oilers fans are left celebrating the only thing the team seems to win these days - the draft lottery.

To tackle this question and other matters, Allan talked with a number of notable gents yesterday, including player agent Tom Lynn, advanced stats guru Gabriel Desjardins and Oil Kings play-by-play voice Corey Graham.

I am not sure that tanking is actually a thing, however. In this blog, I will look at whether teams are really tanking, and if so, how to fix it so there are more meaningful games down the stretch. Follow me over le jump.
