Down Goes Brown: 14 Non-Playoff Teams

For those unfamiliar with Down Goes Brown, Sean McIndoe runs a hockey blog that mixes current events, history, opinion with humour. It's been around for years but I doubt many have heard of it south of the border (north in my case).


On this article he takes a look at the current non-playoff teams and provides a parallel with a current team in the post-season.

IMO the example Detroit is most similar to is Vancouver of a couple years past.

With a declining product and a management team either looking idly by or making all the wrong moves, see the Schneider/Luongo debacle.

Knowing Holland's addiction to over the hill veterans at end of their careers, here are a few Holland would go crazy for if he had the cap space;

Jagr
Iginla
Thornton
Marleau
Vrbata
Seidenberg
Sharp
