Anti-tank memo from Bettman to Coyotes, Oilers, and Sabres?

I notice the Oilers are 4-4-2 in their last 10 games. Arizona has also won two straight games.

 

Do you think Gary Bettman would (or has already) sent a private memo to the NHL's bottom three clubs warning them about potential actions that the league might take should they decide not to play out their remaining games in a competitive manner?

 

With potential actions being heavy fines or even removal from the draft lottery, etc...

 

Thoughts?  :confused[1]:

@WordsOfWisdom  Bettman already sent the memo, in the form of a rule change. The worst team has a 1 in 5 chance (20%) of getting McDavid. Kinda makes the whole tank thing irreverent. Go ahead tank away, for the right to get a few more balls in the basket....does not seem very worthwhile these days.

The bottom three? Toronto has quit playing more than any of those teams. Their top 3 forwards might be the biggest joke in the entire league when it comes to effort.

 

It's not like Buffalos players are mailing it in. They've traded their best players away. They traded their NHL goalies away. They traded for a player who can't even play this year. Not to mention the fans are cheering when they get scored against and booing when they score.

Apparently Buffalo isn't scared or didn't get the memo. 1-6-3 in their last 10. Leafs are 1-8-1 losing 7 in a row and could be passed by Yotes and and Oilers. Clearly this private memo should have included the Leafs.

I saw the highlights from a recent Buffalo game and thought that was gold. The fans get it. :D
