I left that out cause I was going more modern era, obviously the 74-75 Caps was perhaps the worst sports team of all time.

As already mentioned the 08-09 Avs. Really any Avalanche roster that included Tyler Arnason was the worst team the Avalanche have iced, since moving to Denver.

Bingo. An old era was, ummm..., "ushered" out and a new era was brought in. Duchene, O'Reilly, Elliott, and Barrie are definitely silver linings to that season.

But still... that roster was BAD (for Avalanche standards, whatever that may be). Heck, look at what the players from that team are doing now/how their careers panned out. That should tell you a lot about that season. Francois Giguere...

The Islanders 2000-2001 season was awful, and the 2008-2009 season was awful. To think I sat through 41 home games both of those years, don't know how I did it especially 2008-2009. We had nothing to really look forward to. Okposo was the lone forward with potential, he lead our forwards in points with 39 and also lead the team in goals with 18. Atleast we got Tavares for it though.

Since I can remember, I think this year's Red Wings team is the worst. I feel spoiled when I think about it.

Doug Weight and Keith Tkachuk were the best players on the Blues at that point, and both missed nearly half the season. Center depth included such greats as Mike Sillinger, Dean McAmmond, and Ryan Johnson. Sillinger played less than 50 games as well.

Jose Theodore kept that team from a lottery pick and this was the year before he won the Hart/Vezina. Don't remember the lines that well but I'll give it a shot. Point totals in brackets:

B. Savage (45) - S. Koivu (47) - O. Petrov (47)
M. Rucinsky (38) - J. Bulis (23) - R. Zednik (44)
C. Kilger (32) - C. Darby (28) - P. Poulin (20)
B. Brunet (14) - E. Landry (11) - J. Campbell (20)

Also had Juha Lind and Arron Asham as extra forwards

A. Markov (23) - P. Brisebois (36)
S. Souray (11) - S. Robidas (12)
K. Dykhuis (17) - C. Rivet (3)


Also had Francis Bouillon and Patrick Traverse (who makes Brett Lebda look like Bobby Orr I might add) as extras on defense

J. Theodore
J. Hackett

This is roughly how the team looked by the end of the 00-01 season. Trevor Linden and Dainius Zubrus were top six forwards until they were dealt to Washington for Zednik, Bulis and a first round pick (A. Perezhogin). Such a pathetic team that year. Theodore had 20 wins, again pretty much because he'd stop 40+ shots every game. There were games the Habs barely managed 15 shots on goal. Yet because of Theodore, the team wound up with the 7th pick in the 01 draft (used to draft M. Komisarek).

That was also the draft that the Habs were rumoured to be after Atlanta's #1 to draft Kovalchuk. If memory serves, the Habs offered Garon/Markov/their first and possibly something else for the pick but Waddell wanted Theodore in the deal over Garon, which killed it.
I like to call that the "Traverse Era". Anyone who thinks last year was worse than that team because of our record clearly needs to rewatch those years, that team had great goaltending during Theodore's brief peak, and nothing else going for it.

Definitely the 1999-00 Calgary Flames with Valeri Bure as the leading scorer. If it wasn't for Fred Brathwaite coming in and stealing some games, this team would've been dead last in the league.

The Kings once had a team with Jason LOLBarbera and Dan Cloutier on it at the same time. Yeah. We win (or lose?)

I think this one takes the cake

Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Markus Naslund
Alexandre Burrows - Ryan Kesler - Matt Pettinger
Brad Isbister - Byron Ritchie - Ryan Shannon
Jeff Cowan - Trevor Linden - Rick Rypien

Willie Mitchell - Kevin Bieksa
Alexander Edler - Sami Salo
Luc Bourdon - Mike Weaver

vs edmonton, 2nd last game of season

As brutal as that team turned out to be, it's nowhere nearly as barren of talent as some of them. Those Pens, Blues, Hawks, and Caps teams are nightmarishly bad. The blessing and curse of being a Flyers fan: our teams always look great. . . ON PAPER.

You're lucky you didn't see the 15 yr run from the expansion year to 82/83.

1976/77 was especially rough. 16-55-9 (41 pts). 183 goals for / 309 goals against. Worst PP / 2nd worst PK.

In a season that saw:
1 60 goal scorer.
2 50+ goal scorers.
3 40+ goal scorers.
24 30+ goal scorers.....Walt McKechnie led the Wings in goal scoring with 25, (49th in the league). Michel Bergeron was next with 21.

Eight defensemen play 23 games or more. The best +/- was Jim Nahrgang's -12. Al Cameron was a league worst -43. Three of the bottom five for +/- were Wings. Dennis Polonich led the NHL in PIMs with 274. Cameron was 5th.

Spoiled would be an understatement.

In obvious retrospect the Rangers signed the wrong Sabre that off season.

As far as the worst?


See Rangers, New York. Seasons 98-04

Hilarious coming from the fan of the team who called up their ECHL goalie when Kolzig was...ahem...injured for the home stretch of the 03-04 season while the "tanking" Pens finished with something like a 10-3 run.

That 03-04 season was actually pretty cool for me. Got to go to about 30 games due to the student rush program and have lots of great memories with my high school friends from those games. Terrible team, though, just awful. The 2 highlights of that season were Ric Jackman scoring in OT in Phoenix to end the 18 game losing streak and Morozov scoring in OT in the 2nd to last game of the year and holding out the logo on his jersey to show pride. Ah, memories.

The 81/82 Leafs may have been the saddest excuse for a Leaf team I can remember. That was the year of the three 18 year olds on D. Benning, Boimistruck, and McGill. Sittler was traded halfway thru, as was Wilf Paiement, Laurie Boschman, Pat Hickey, and Ian Turnbull. The goaltending, however, was the worst. Bunny Laroque and Vincent Tremblay shared the load, racking up a grand total of 20 wins between them and a GA over 4.50. With the exception of the Vaive, Derlago, Anderson line, the rest of the offence was pretty bad. When Bob Manno is your 4th highest scoring forward, you know you're in BIG trouble.

For me, I'd have to go with 2002-2003 Rangers...man, it got bad near the end. Rem Murray, Joel Bouchard, Rico Fata, Boris Mironov (who I ****ing hated!), Dale Purinton, Dan LaCatoure, Ted Donato (Jesus...), Corey Cross, John Tripp, Richard Lintner, Dave Karpa, Billy Tibbets (who wasn't allowed to play against Canadian teams because of a **** conviction and parole violation...), Ales Pisa, Krzysztof Oliwa, Gordie Dwyer, Mike Wilson and Dixon Ward all made appearances for the team that year, and many played a lot.

The amount of injuries and pure awfulness of that team was mind-blowing. Messier was already ancient, Lindros sucked, Bure got brought in, played 12 games, then promptly blew out his knee, Richter got hurt and never played again, Blackburn got hurt in the offseason and never played again, Bobby Holik absolutely sucked balls...

That team was honestly amazing, I don't think I've seen anything even close to that bad from a team I like, although the Mets have come close.

I should say that I don't remember this season, as I was 7 years old, but the 1989-90 Flyers team looks atrocious. From what I can piece together from the stats, they got rid of Brian Propp, Dave Poulin, and Jay Wells, and Hextall had a combination of contract holdout, suspension, and injuries, so the team at the end of the season looks something like this:

Murray Craven-Mike Bullard-Rick Tocchet
Pelle Eklund-Ron Sutter-Tim Kerr
Brian Propp-Keith Acton-Ilkka Sinisalo
Craig Berube-Ken Linseman-Scott Mellanby
Tony Horacek, Derrick Smith

Gord Murphy-Mark Howe
Kjell Samuelsson-Terry Carkner
Jeff Chychrun-Kerry Huffman
Jiri Latal

Ken Wregget
Pete Peeters

The only thing i can see as a positive is offensive depth. The rest looks like a bunch of has-beens, with a few never-weres mixed in. That had to be one of the oldest teams in the league. I also have never seen such a crap group of centers on the Flyers at one time. Without Poulin, that position is a wasteland.
