I'm a Pens fan, but man, they suck. Ever since Jagr left, and they started trading away their good players because they couldn't afford them, it's been downhill. All teams have their down seasons. We'll see what happens, but I'm not holding my breath for them to turn around any time soon.
edit: and being a native of Rochester, I have a soft spot for the Sabres too. Sucks that the network that played all their games got pulled from the basic cable lineup. Those bastards.
