When Losing is Winning : 2004 NHL Draft


Why the Pittsburgh Penguins Won by Losing the 2004 NHL Draft Lottery

I don't typically like BleacherReport.com, they have some okay articles but a lot of the time the writers are morons... but I came across this article and thought it was pretty good.  

It's really weird how things worked out... I can't imagine us not having Crosby and/or Malkin.  The Penguins are a prime example of how to build through the draft(and how to be a bad enough team for so many years that you are able to put together a plethora of high first round picks to create a fantastic team).  Another good example of that would be the Tampa Bay Rays.  

The content expressed in fanposts does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the staff here at Pensburgh.com. FanPosts are opinions expressed by fans of various teams throughout the league but may be more Pittsburgh-centric for obvious reasons.
