I came to post a Hawks roster from around that time. It honestly doesn't get much better until well after the lockout in 06-07, and even then only because Keith/Seabrook were progressing and adding Havlat.

I started following the team after the lockout, so I dont remember much from the ABC line days. They were dark indeed.

Alex Ovechkin.


Also, Pittsburgh and Chicago were in peak tanking form at the time as well.

If they Penguins were ever tanking, it certainly wasn't in 05-06. The salary cap allowed management to actually be active in the free agent market, and as a result they added higher-priced veterans such as Recchi, Gonchar, LeClair, Palffy, and Thibault, and some misguided publications had them making noise in the playoffs. Obviously that didn't happen and they still finished 29th, but it certainly wasn't a tank job.

Good post! People need to understand that sucking really bad is different from intentional failure. There are reasons to believe that some teams have played bad on purpose for a draft pick. That is tanking. But that does not mean that every team that was in the basement for a couple of years was trying to lose.

I totally agree with you. But that's only looking at a team on paper, as far as I'm concerned, as I haven't watched the early 2000s Habs.

And i just thought of something... The Habs were pretty god awful this season. It's like my brain tried to avoid going there when I first wrote my post. I don't know if this season is worse than 2006-2007 was, even though the standings suggest so. I still feel the Canadiens' record is far worse than the team actually was on the ice.

It was late. My bad

Our center depth looks very similar to that year actually. Plek=plek DD=Koivu Bonk=Eller.

Aaahhh, yes, the dark times between 1997 and 2008. (Except for one playoff year in between). As much as some Hawks fan complain, the little stretch now of being knocked out in the first round of the playoffs doesn't even remotely compare to the craptacular rosters from this time period. Now you see why there were 10,000 people or less in the United Center in those years....would YOU go to a game with a lineup like that???

Years the Pens have tanked:

1967-2012 (except for 1983-84,that year was legit)

Chicago has never tanked. Not even for a week. We just ****ing sucked and the owner refused to spend money on the team. Also, pretty much agree with Teemu. There were some other brutal teams, worse in some ways, but Amonte and Daze were still here so it's hard to compare to when they were gone.

2003-2004 Pittsburgh Penguins was the worst I personally witnessed.

My first game in person was January 10th, 2004 and the Penguins got blown out 8-0 against the Habs

I think I recall Steve freakin' McKenna wearing that C during the game.

Dude, we had our leading scorer with only 21 goals, and this was a 24-year-old rookie just out of the NCAA.

Aleksey Morozov was our "star" player

When Hemsky, Horcoff, Hall, Gagner, Whitney were all injured that one year so we had something like this:

Paajarvi-Cogliano-Omark
Hartkianen-VandeVelde-Eberle
Jf Jacques-O'Marra-Jones
Strudwick-Fraser-Reddox

Gilbert-Smid
Foster-Vandermeer
Chorney-Petry

Dubnyk


It's so depressing yet hilarious

2008-2009 Avalanche: The year of the snow blower. That was an all-around awful roster. A bunch of ageing players and no-names (roster already listed; page 2).

The rosters from this game might win for both the Capitals and the Penguins:

http://espn.go.com/nhl/boxscore?gameId=240330023

When Ric Jackman and Josef Boumedienne lead the teams in ice time, you know it's an all time stinker.

Canucks had the worst defence of all time play one game vs. the Flames. Ohlund, Salo, Jovanovski, and Baumgartner were all injured, leaving:

Bryan Allen - Tomas Mojzis
Steve McCarthy - Kevin Bieksa (rookie year, before he broke out he was basically a plug)
Sven Butenschon - Wade Brookbank

They actually won that game

Full season? probably the 97-98 Hurricanes and even that wasn't bad compared to some of the crap rosters that have been posted so far.

Single Game:

Ryan Bayda - Ron Francis - Jeff O'Neill
Craig Adams - Josef Vasicek - Craig McDonald
Tomas Kurka - Mike Zigomanis - Jeff Daniels
Brad DeFauw - Mike Watt

Sean Hill - Bret Hedican
Aaron Ward - Bruno St Jacques
Niclas Wallin - David Tanabe
Tomas Malec

Kevin Weekes
Patrick DesRochers

and somehow they tied the Leafs.

Garth Murray/Aaron Downey/7th dman - Lapierre/Bégin - Latendresse

Markov - Komisarek
Rivet (Gorges) - Souray
Bouillon - Dandenault/Streit
Niinimaa

Huet
Aebischer
Last season's roster was much worse than even this one. The 2006-07 team was nothing special of course, just very disappointing since fans really believed they were certain to make the playoffs. I blame the Ribeiro trade, Samsonov and Aebischer.

You lost your captain, but at least you compensated with a fantastic draft.

08-09 for the Avs

at the start of the year it was decent, but the injuries were the worst ive ever seen. Tyler Arnason was the top line center.

the defense was almost entirely AHL, and the goalies were Budaj/Raycroft.
