The Tank. It’s ripping the NHL apart right now and pundits are trying to sort out how to fix it. Teams are losing and not just that, they’re trying to lose. No, not the players. The players would never try to lose. In fact, any player who tried to lose a game on purpose is scum and deserves to be exiled to the desert where they wander the waste lands looking for shelter from the oppressive sun and dodging bands of roaming cannibals. But, Organizations sure as heck are trying to build purposefully poor rosters in order to pick up a lot of L’s. What do we do about it?

He’s also well down on any legitimate list of the Oilers’ problems.

If Lawson Crouse hadn't shown up on the hockey horizon, we might not have had anything to talk about for the 2015 draft. That's a stretch but the fact remains Crouse has—more than anyone in recent history—divided talent assessors in a big way. Is he a great prospect or a kid who developed into manhood far ahead of the other teenagers of his generation? Where will he play? Can he score consistently? Does he check well enough to be considered an impact checker? What the hell is an impact checker? Lawson Crouse is exhausting even just to talk about. Wait until you see him play!
