    Inspired by a similar thread about a team's recent past, I thought a hockey HISTORY version would be apt.

    Just a simple story of a team's entire history, in only three lines.

    How to haiku:

    The poem is three lines long.
    The first line is 5 syllables.
    The second line is 7 syllables.
    The third line is 5 syllables.
    Does not need to rhyme.


    Go.

    Conn built the Gardens
    After that, embarassment
    There's always next year


    And to re-post from the Devils thread:
    The Robinson years
    Were faster and fun to watch
    But people forget


    And something else I wanted to post in the Devils thread, but nobody seemed to appreciate my first attempt at poetry:
    Mogilny scored goals
    But sometimes he didn't care
    Russian enigma

    Early promise but
    Finley's clown show derailed them
    I miss you, my Seals

    Rarely were golden
    Often tarnished, with white skates
    Meloche was great though
