I beg to differ. The Canes were. Of course, no one expected a repeat performance of the prior year but going from Stanley Cup Finalist to the basement has to take the winner of biggest disappointment.


I suppose reasonable folks might disagree, but from the onset of the season the Sharks were expected to go deep into the playoffs with a legitimate shot at the finals while the Canes were expected to exit the payoffs early (if I recall correctly). So where's the disappointment greater?

Also, the Sharks failed to sign their starting goalie and top young defenseman as the season began ... then fired their long time coach and traded their captain away. To top the season off they made it clear that they would not really attempt to sign their only star potential/name player.
