If I had to use one word to describe Miroslav Satan, it'd be inconsistent.

With the Buffalo Sabres, he had his two best stretches of his career. From 1998/00, he had back to back 60+ point seasons, and, from 2001/03, back to back 70+ point seasons. That is all a far cry of what he did with the Pittsburgh Penguins however.

Satan started so hot to begin this season that some of us were thinking big things for Miro. That of course didn't happen. What did happen for Satan was a demotion from Heaven Pittsburgh to Hell Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after very poor play. While I agree it was deserved, I also respect the professionalism of Satan for taking the demotion and working hard in the AHL. After Satan's demotion, he was really able to get a better feel in the AHL, scoring nine points in ten games for the Baby Pens.

In early April, Miroslav Satan was recalled by the Penguins, cleared re-entry waivers, and eventually went on to win his first career Stanley Cup.

It was a whirlwind of a year with the Penguins for Satan, and, in my opinion, he finished it very strong. He didn't have Geno-esque numbers in the playoffs, but was a steady postseason figure after a really slow second-half regular season performance.
