Do The Thrashers Have Large Talons?

Fun with Pictures

Well in the "opps" department the Thrashers website got a jump on the press release folks and spilled the news that news that Johan Hedberg has apparently re-signed.

Some enterprising fan was able to get a screen capture before it was removed. Note the Headline "Moose Re-Signs With Thrashers" just below the picture of Enstrom.

The NHL Awards Ceremony is almost always disappointing. Between all of the wretched bad-pun humor and the terrible music it looks like something your crazy uncle produced in his basement. It makes you realize that the phrase "Canadian Culture" is an oxymoron.

Well, the NHL really had egg on its face this time as it started selling "Ovechkin MVP" shifts well before the ceremony had even been held to annouce the winners.

During the NHL Awards Ceremony the NHL had young children play a big role. When five-time Norris Trophy Winner Nick Lidstrom's name was called the kid wearing his stepped forward and revealed that they had put an extra "n" in his name--how in the world do you misspell somebody that famous? Why didn't anyone see it? All they had to do is check the trophy to get the name right.

This last picture is for all those folks at the NHL and Thrashers offices who had a rough week. There may have been some snafus this week but at least you're warm and dry which is more than we can say for these two soggy cats fleeing from rising flood waters in Iowa.


  • Falconer,
    What do you think of this?:
    Another coach to consider: Bill Peters, of the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL. Deboer coached the Kithchener Rangers, who lost to the Spokane Chiefs in the CHL Championships/Memorial Cup, was hired by the Florida Panthers. In three seasons, Bill Peters turned the Chiefs around. Losing record 1st year, eliminated in the 1st round of playoffs 2nd year, and won the Memorial Cup this year. He is coaching some great prospects. If you go to, they have his coaching stats. If these minor league coaches are being hired to inject new blood, why can't we look at another one? Bill Peters' name has not come up on anyone's list that I know of.

    I emailed this to the owners at Atlanta Spirit. Don't know if it will do any good, but it is worth a try. I know that they are talking to McCrimmon, Anderson, and have asked permission to talk to Sullivan, Tortorella's assistant in Tampa Bay, and a former Boston Bruins coach. Tell me what you think of each candidate that I have talked about here. I know about Tortorella, not interested in him. I think that he is the same as hartley, and would not be considered.

  • Falconer,
    Who do you like in the draft for us to get?

    Who would you like for us to trade to get in free agency? What is your wish list?

    Who is your coach wish list at this point now that Deboer and McLellan have gone elsewhere?

  • re: Draft. I'd be very pleased with either Bogosian or Doughty

    re: Coach. I'm pretty unexcited about the candidates that are left over. Not sure why Randy Cunneyworth gets no mention--unless he Buffalo is not letting him interview.
