Worst roster your team has iced?

What is the worst roster your team has iced that you remember seeing?

Now for the Leafs I know they've had bad years in the 80s but I started following in the late 90s, so the worst team I personally watched was probably the 2008-2009 team. Now I know statistically the 2009-2010 team did even worse the 08-09 line up is just hideous.

Hagman-Antropov-Blake
Kulemin-Grabovski-Ponikarovsky
Stempniak-Moore-Stajan
Devereaux/May-Mitchell-Mayers

Kaberle-Kubina
White-Schenn
Stralman-Finger

Toskala
Joseph

*Shudders* I don't know how we didn't finish 1st or 2nd overall with that roster, wouldda been nice to get Tavares.

Now those aren't the exact line combos, but I did what I remembered. Only bright spots was Schenn playing great, Grabo's first 20 goal season and Kulie showing potential. While 2009-2010 finished worst at least Burke added some goons that year, this years team was the softest team i've ever witnessed, way worse then us now.

Go.

That team could actually score though, they couldn't play defense however, but they could score

Well have the Leafs ever had trouble scoring in the past few years? Scoring isn't our problem, it's letting goals in.

In my time as a fan:

Sedin-Sedin-Pyatt
Naslund-Morrison-Cooke/Pettinger
Burrows-Kesler-Shannon
Cowan-Ritchie-Linden
Raymond/Jaffray
Rypien

Mitchell-Bieska
Ohlund-Salo
Weaver-Edler
Bourdon
Krajicek
Miller

Luongo
Sanford

This team lead the division, only to finish 1-9-0, and were eliminated from the playoff race in the penultimate game of the season:




Does this sound familiar?
  1. Vancouver can't score to save their lives.
  2. Burrows comes through in the clutch.
  3. Jarret Stoll scores the game-winning goal to eliminate the Canucks.

The shot of Dave Nonis at 4:03 pretty much represents that season's stretch-drive.

2005-2006 St. Louis Blue

I can't even figure out line combinations, we had so many terrible players playing. Our leading scorer was Scott Young, with 49 points. Our 2nd, 4th, and 6th leading scorers (Weight, Sillinger, and Tkachuk, respectively) were all traded. We had 10 Dmen play over 25, including stalwarts such as Kevin Dallman, Jeff Woywitka, Eric Weinrich, Christian Backman, and Steve Poapst. Our goalies were Bacashihua, Sanford, Lalime, and Divis. They combined for a 3.30 GAA and a .891 sv %. We didn't score 200 goals, and was last in GF/G. We were 28th in GA/G. We were awful.

Whatever the Oilers roster was at the end of last year (10/11). It is one of the worst rosters of all time. 5 of the top 6 scorers were out injured.

That was actually their second season.

For the Oilers I'd say 92-93. It was a very high scoring season for most teams. The Oilers leading scorer that year? Petr Klima with 48pts....

Was that the year Dick Tarnstrom lead the team in scoring?

The 2000-2001 Habs team minus Theodore. Missed the playoffs for a 3rd straight year.

Started watching NJ in the late 90s so I'd have to give this nod to either the 05/06 team or the 07/08 team. Brodeur was a monster that year.

Just like you said too, during my time as a fan. Easily this team.

Oh man...I went to the last game they played against the Minnesota Wild in St. Paul...what an awful group. Shutout 4-0, Luongo was pulled, Cowan fought Boogaard.

This was also the game if people remember where Burrows speared Bouchard which caused a small line brawl.

Zombotron, the 2007-08 Canucks were no where near the worst team we've ever iced. Disappointing? Sure, but the team had some actual talent and potential... unlike, say, our expansion years.

Early '70's aside, it our worst team would probably be our 1998-99 squad: The Bure holdout year... where our top line of Naslund, Messier and Mogilny managed just 159 points combined (Messier and Mogilny were both outscored by defenceman, Adrian Aucoin) and Garth Snow was our #1 goalie.

Although, all things considered, any of our mid-1980's teams may well have been worse.

I guess you didn't start following the Canucks until after the 90s.

In the later part of the 90s, most people in BC made fun of you if you were a Canucks fan. A lot of people wore NYR, Mighty Ducks, Sharks, Leafs, Avalanche, Red Wings, etc. jerseys. Am I really that old?

You obviously were not around in 1974-5.

That actually sounds pretty good.

For the Rangers it has to be the lineup in 03-04 after we dealt away all our talent during the trade deadline. That's the worst since I started watching at least.

That was the full strength lineup which was okay, the bad part was the injury depleted team that finished the season 1-9. I can find the games on the NHL schedule but can't track down any boxscores, but that's the worst lineup for the Canucks I recall seeing since I started following the team closely in... I think 97.
