what about Selecting area and the Right Clicking and click on Inspect Element? Select the container with the data you want (table or div etc...) and then you can "Copy as HTML" into a doc and then output the doc to pdf – Logman Jun 27 '13 at 3:09

HTTrack website copier is capable of doing this, but you'd have to download the whole site. After, though, you could import it into Adobe Dreamweaver and edit to your hearts content!

I use evernote web clipper plugin for chrome for this purpose. You can either clip pages as notes or PDF as well.
