    u can blame the bottom feeders in the league who have shamelessly tanked seasons in the past to get into the top spot.

    same like in the nhl you can blame mario lemieux for putting on the suck to take sid the kid.

    I get the avoid tanking bit and I agree with it. The drop off is pretty drastic though. Having a 50% chance to pick 5th when you were the worst team is a bit much. The idea is correct, but the percentages are wrong.

    The year Crosby was drafted was a lottery based on number of playoff appearances in the years before the lookout. There was no tanking going on.

    The Pens did, however, intentionally tank to land Lemiuex.
