On Tuesday, the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins and you can bet those on the Mike Valenti Show on 97.1 The Ticket have their panties in a bunch.

You see, Valenti and his lapdogs have consistently been pushing for the Red Wings to tank (lose on purpose) so the team has a better chance at getting the No. 1 overall pick. It’s a concept that may work in video games but when HUMAN BEINGS are involved, they are going to try to win every game they play.

Following Tuesday’s win over the Penguins, Red Wings’ goaltender Jimmy Howard was asked by 97.1 The Ticket’s Jeff Riger about what he thinks when he hears the Wings should tank.

Howard took the opportunity to call out 97.1.

Nation, what do you think would be best for the Red Wings? Winning as many games as possible or tanking?

Here are some comments by Red Wings’ head coach Jeff Blashill.
