You know what we do all remember? Those front-runner Pens fans invading Nationwide in their Crosby jerseys and sitting atop our Zamboni.
I have a dream that someday a Jackets fan in a Yakupov jersey sits atop the Penguins zamboni...
What's changed is that a large-scale rebuild would theoretically be possible. There are plenty of components of the current team that have good value around the league, even if they're grossly unproductive right now.
