Look at the Pens in 2016. We absolutely SUCKED at the beginning of the year, people were screaming for heads, "trade Malkin, trade Crosby!" Then management fired our coach, brought in Sullivan, made some trades, some moves, and all of a sudden, we were on fire! Crosby couldn't score fast enough. And the haters were no where to be found. And then we won the Cup!

At the beginning of the beginning of the season, if you had told me we were going to make the play-offs, I'd have looked at you like you had three heads.
