It would have been the greatest turnaround in the history of sports. Not just worst to first, but a record losing streak in one year, to within a cross bar of going to the Stanley Cup Finals.....just imagine .....



..... and thats why 15 years later I still honor Larinonov in my avi. There may have been more skilled players who have been on the team in their primes, but there has never been a team before or since that almost pulled off what the 94 Sharks did. (and look at the pass from Larionov at 1.19. Who makes that pass on this team?)
Hate to be the downer, but the 1994 team made it to the second round, not the third. We were a crossbar away from the WCF, which the 2004 team actually made. The 2004 team is the furthest we've ever been.
