People's Opinions Are Very Important

Now that Science has discovered that Ilya Kovalchuk's lackadaisical defense was the sole reason the Thrashers could never win at the Hockey, it's dismaying to learn that Zach Bogosian's lackadaisical defense has become the new sole reason the Thrashers can't win at the Hockey. And to think we'd just gotten rid of the dude who was Holding Us Back! Only to find out, like history's dupes, that there's this other terrible man who's still Holding Us Back, even in this promising post-Kovalchuk era.

Clearly the only solution is to trade him. Bogo for a top prospect! Get on it, DW.

UPDATE: The post-Bogosian era is already underway! According to Chris Vivlamore, "[the] Thrashers have called up Arturs Kulda."

Maybe Kulda can bitchslap the sophomore slump off of Bogosian. Somebody's gotta do it.

Thank you for using the phrase "sophomore slump." I haven't seen it used anywhere on the message boards and comment threads where people have convinced themselves that Bogosian is literally regressing to a pre-embryonic state of defensive ability.

You'd think people had never heard of one. A sophomore slump, that is.

I'd like to see Bogosian paired with Enstrom again. He was paired with him at the start of the year and seemed to do well.

Mortimer Peacock said...

Yeah, they were always awesome together. Though Enstrom is also really good with Kubina. I don't know, I simply think Bogo's in a sophomore slump this year and not much is going to change that. He'll get back on track next season.

Enstrom, meanwhile, is some sort of god.

I'm really glad to see Kulda get his shot. Between himself, Postma, and Vishnevskiy (however you spell it)...we've got 3 guys who are just about NHL-ready defenders. Especially considering Popovic, Schubert, and Kubina are all pending UFAs.

Rick Dudley was quoted on XM radio today as saying this team "doesn't have a lot of holes to fill right now." Another forward would be nice, but maybe he's right?

Mortimer Peacock said...

Yes, it'll be interesting to see what Kulda can do. I think everyone's been curious about him for a long time now.

I just want someone who is willing to chokeslam the shit out of anyone who dares walk accross the middle infront of our net. I think our goaltenders would agree.
