2010 - team was burnt out - very difficult to make the finals 3 straight years - still made it to 2nd round which has to count for something. Lost to Habs in 7 in a very tight series.
2011 - injuries - nothing more needs said really - almost even pulled an upset going 7 again.
2012 - yeah that was a failure
2013 - made it to 3rd round which again should count for something. Embarrassing yes, but not total failure.
Really only 2 years of playoff failure at the most.
but go ahead and keep repeating the lie to try and further your agenda.
2010 - Way more talent than the other team. Blew a 3-2 series lead and got blown out at home in game 7.
2011 - The least terrible of them all, but still blew a 3-1 series lead and that should never happen no matter what. Lost another home game 7.
2012 - IMO, the most embarrassing moment in team history
2013 - Should have lost to the Islanders in the 1st round as a 1 seed. Got outplayed in 4 out of the 6 games and only won because the Islanders had no other goalie to turn to like the Pens did. Average goaltending wins the Islanders that series. Then got embarrassed by Boston. 2 goals in 4 games. Nothing else needs to be said. Not even close to winning that series.
Its not an agenda. And just because I don't like Obamacare doesn't mean I hate black people.
