Tanking when the first overall pick is consensus to be an impact player requires no luck, only low self-esteem to lose on purpose. And the Penguins are only second in history to the Nords in that category.

Really, only second to the 89-90 Nords. The most pathetic (Intentional?) tailspin in hockey history.

Playing 40 games with goalies near a 5.00 GAA can't be trying to win.

However, coming back to Pissburgh, winning the lottery to get Crosby was luck. And to think it could have been us. I love Carey Price though.
