Hasn't happened since. That's pathetic.

Pittsburgh came close, finished with the worst record before the lock-out and the second worst the year after the lock-out. (Malkin, Crosby, Staal).

Tampa also had a 30th, 29th back to back not long ago (Stamkos and Hedman).

Here's hoping for a Pittsburgh or Tampa style turn-around.
Pittsburgh also had Fleury first overall in '03. I hope we don't have to suck that much to get better.
