Do You Remember? by LCJS

It's incredible how long ago 2004 feels.  In the midst of the X-Generation, the Pens were a terrible team that sold off all of their talent in order to keep the lights in Mellon Arena on.Ten years ago was the season before Sidney Crosby was a Penguin and the team was in the gutter.  During an 18-game losing streak that year, the Pens went 0-17-1.  Hell, in the first 62 games...
