Isn't It Great?

I mean, how awful your (and our) Atlanta Thrashers are?

That last game had not so much to do with the fact that Boston is a fine team (which they are) as it did with the fact that the Thrashers are horrific.

Nice to see Boris Valabik get his first NHL goal, I suppose.

How about that crazy Phil Kessel? At one time a potential Atlanta Thrasher, he.

And that Don Waddell? Inept, but not the main problem.

Even if the Thrash hired a better GM, not much would change. The Atlanta Spirit Group aren't terribly interested in the Hockey, and it shows.

Trade me now.

I think I could help L.A. or Chicago or Vancouver, perhaps. San Jose, sadly, doesn't need my help.

Come to think of it, I was happy to see Chris Thorburn drop the gloves against the unbeatable (in a fight) Zdeno Chara. Courage, and such. I wish the Thrash had allowed the game to "degenerate" into an all-out brawl. Maybe that'll happen tomorrow night.

UPDATE: Mine eyes told me (at the game, they did) that that one goal was scored by Ilya "I'm the only talented one" Kovalchuk and not Boris Somebody-or-Other. The NHL boxscore people just told me my eyes shouldn't be so hard on themselves: they were right. The Czar with 11.

Last year, i tried to force the organization to trade me to Chicago. then they threatened to put me on waivers and said i'd be claimed by tampa bay.

If it's any consolation, your guys are way better than Tampa. They kept coming after being down 4-0, and weren't leaving without a fight. That's more than I can say for the Lightning.

Chara is not unbeatable in a fight. Darcy Hordichuck kicked his ass when he was a Thrasher. How I miss those days.
