The Rangers pulled out a win today in a tightly contested game, beating the Atlanta Thrashers 2-1. I felt the Rangers had the better of the play for the whole game tonight. The first Sean Avery goal was a fluke, but well deserved by Avery, who was easily the best player of the game. He had more shots than anyone else on the team, assisted on Shanahan's game-winner, and ...

Stop the Handringing

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Enough with the Handringing Rangers' Fans. Believe it or not guys we are winning 2 games to None, not the other way around. From what I've been hearing from my fellow Rangers fans over the past few days you'd think that the Thrashers ran the Blueshirts out of Atlanta. The reality is our team played the same game they have been playing over the past few months and the re...
That's right... Lidstrom sucks defensively! If anyone else is currently watching the Flames-Wings game, you just saw Primeau skate around Lidstrom with ease to set up a highlight reel play, only to be stoned by Hasek... Now we all know that Lidstrom is one of, if not the best defenceman in the league, but the point of this is to point out that every defenceman ends up o...
Although the Sabres don't play tonight, there are still 5 games that should be very interesting. [b]Atlanta/NYR[/b] - [i]Rangers lead series 2-0[/i] Atlanta must win this game to have any chance. They already gave up both of their home games to start the series. It Atlanta can play well on the road for the next 2 games, they could have a shot at winning. However, I ...

Rangers Flying High.

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
With the win on Tuesday night the New York Rangers are in a position to sweep the Atlanta Thrashers right out of the playoffs. A Big game from the number 1 line helped put a beating on the Atlanta team who, unlike in the first 2 games, came up flat footed. In game 1 the Thrashers came out fired up. Looking to hit everything in their path. Crashing and banging in an att...

Was that a dream?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Just looked at the morning paper and to my surprise the Rangers did beat the Thrashers 7-0 last night to take a 3 games to none lead in their opening round series. It had seemed so perfect that I thought I must've dreamt it. That was one of the most complete wins this team has had in a long time, that it ended a 10 year home playoff win drought only made it that much sw...
Tonight Ranger fans got to see something that hasn't happened in the Garden in ages...a playoff sweep and a date in the second round of the playoffs. It was our first playoff series win in 10 years....and boy did it feel good. The atmosphere at the Garden the past 2 games was sensational and the Rangers fed off of it and played near perfect hockey both games. What can...

Confidence or Cockiness

The sweep of the Atlanta Thrashers has been completed. New York Rangers move on to the second round and the Garden Faithful can rejoice..... For now. The Rangers played an Atlanta team who didn't seem nearly as prepared as they should of been. Don't get me wrong. Rangers played a great series. They moved the puck well, they forechecked, they backchecked, [i][b]they shot...
[b]Washington[/b]: Ovechkin, who may very well play GM again in Columbus this year (:lol: ), is in agreement with the management staff that 07/08 should be the year the team returns to it’s mid-90s Poile-era form, or at least make a conscious effort. With Backstrom coming in, the Caps will look to acquire just a bit more depth up the middle. Expect them to get into the ...
I'm a Atlanta Thrashers fan, let's get that out in the open. But I am very curious to see if they will change their ways at all. I watched the Thrashers ever since they drafted number 17 - Ilya Kovalchuk - and now, I watch because I love the team. Kovy's still my favourite player, but I've come to love this team. What do we have? We've got offense. Marian Hossa, Il...
So who's the winner so far in the Free Agent summer grab? Is it Philadelphia with the leading free agent scorer Briere? The Rangers and their two-headed coup, or the Avalanche with heart and soul warrior Ryan Smyth. Well, I'm gonna go with the less flashy Thrashers and their retention of underrated (until now) center Slava Kozlov. They are one of the very few teams to re...

Paging Don Waddell!

Posted Friday | Comments 0
March 15, 2002: The Atlanta Thrashers trade Ruslan Zainullin to the Calgary Flames for Marc Savard. In 182 games with the Thrashers, Savard went on to score 63 goals and 196 points. After the 2005-2006 season, Savard priced himself out of Atlanta, signing with the Boston Bruins for 4 years, at $5 million per season. Since that point, Thrashers GM Don Waddell has continuous...
David Legwand is looking to improve on last years career highs in goals and points. Last night on the eve of Nashville’s first pre-season home game I had a dream that the Preds raised the Stanley Cup at the Sommet Center in front of a packed house for the first time in Preds history. I remember the dream so vividly because it was almost like every time that cup was ...
-As I stated in my last blog, I have some basic predictions for the output we can expect for some of our players this year. I obviously am making these predictions based on what I have seen thus far, and please feel free to leave your own predictions or comment on mine: -[u]Forwards[/u]: Comrie: 36 Goals, 35 Assists Guerin: 27 Goals, 40 Assists Fedotenko: 2...
Tonight's game at the Igloo vs. the Atlanta Thrashers will be a true test to see whether the Pens are ready to turn the corner and start heading up the Eastern Conference ladder, up where many hockey pundits predicted they'd be this year. The Thanksgiving Night victory in Ottawa vs. the high octane Senators was a huge one for the Pens. Another loss, which looked pretty...
What a difference a game makes. Two nights after Marc-Andre Fleury was yanked after allowing two arguably soft goals in the first period in Ottawa, Penguins coach Michel Therrien came right back with Fleury back at home tonight vs. the Atlanta Thrashers. Fleury did not repeat his poor performance tonight, in fact he made 28 saves in a 5-0 Penguins shutout. The defense...
Couldn't believe it a Thrasher Jersey for Christmas... what a wonderful gift! You see in Canada you can't find that much Thrashers stuff at local stores, NHL.com or Ebay.com are really the one way to get something like this. One of my Christmas wishes fullfilled, then I got to thinking there are so many wishes that I would love for my Thrashers in 2008, why not make a li...
Atlanta just finished playing there 2nd stinker of a game in a row, other than Kari Lehtonen and the immortal Ilya Kovalchuk the whole team is just bad right now, I don't know if Hossa is hurt or Ek has hurt his feeling as he hasn't had a trade rumour about Hoss in a while. Either way Hossa is not playing like the Hossa I know and used to love. As I live in Canada I don'...
Finally after 11 consectuive games dating back to November 2003 the Panthers get a win in Atlanta beating the Thrashers 5-3. Once again a solid performance by Tomas Vokoun leading the way with key saves when they were needed. It was also nice however to see Nathan Horton get on the scoreboard with 2 goals. Hopefully this will spark him going forward and get him out of t...

My Utopian NHL - Part I

I kind of stole this idea from THN but heres a list of changes that I would make if I had one day to do anything and everything to the NHL. Let me know what you think and any other ideas that you would like to see. [b]1. Florida Panthers move to Winnipeg [/b] I don't know how this team manages to survive in Florida. They haven't made the playoffs since 2000-01. They h...
Second half of the season starts on Tuesday, and I like the fact that it's so close in the standings. It's ultimately good for the sport to have as many teams as possibly vying for a playoff spot right now and makes up to certain hockey excitement that people only could see in the playoffs. Another thing that makes more games more exciting to watch is because of the am...
other trade rumors I found for today... Canucks are a big-time player in trade talks for the likes of Brad Richards, Olli Jokinen, but don't like richards salary or minus 25 on the year. Tanguay, rumored to be headed to Montreal for Michael Ryder, Tanguay also has a no-trade clause and it's been recently reported that he would be willing to accept a trade to Montreal...
As reported by Ek and confirmed by the Ducks, Brian Burke has finally found a new home for Mathieu Schneider in "Blueland." The full details of the trade are as follows: [b]TO ATL:[/b] D [b]Mathieu Schneider[/b] | Age 39 | Contract: 1 year, $5,625,000 [b]TO ANA:[/b] D [b]Ken Klee[/b] | Age 37 | Contract: 1 year, $1,250,000 W [b]Brad Larsen[/b] |...
So the long awaited move has finally happened . Burke managed to unload Schneider to get his team under the cap. The trade looked liek this : Anaheim aqcuired: Ken Klee (1.250), Brad Larsen (.560), Chad Painchaud(.100) Atlanta acquired: Mathieu Schneider (5.625) Now here comes the question . Who do you think won that trade? We all know Anaheim's one intetion was ...

Half the season is over, and the leafs are finally beginning to show their true colors. Burke isn't surprised, although he denies that he and his staff are quote "tanking," he says that these losses are just the growing pains of icing a young team. Growing pains that will deliver us a much needed 1st round pick. As always with rebuilding, and any city that has undergon...
Sunday night’s blowout 8-4 loss to Atlanta could somehow be the best thing that happens to Anaheim this season. Every team has stinkers throughout the course of their season, but this one stings the most.

The Thrashers have had some shotty goaltending in the early half of the regular season with people doubting the teams goalies. Then Atlanta's main man Kari was sidelined with back issues and then came another question. Could the man known as "Moose" get, and keep this team on track? Well, after a month of continous pressure on the veteran, he ended up with a record that mo...
Ilya Kovalchuk is well, a superstar. He can snipe, check and can handle the puck like it's nothing. He's amazed not just Thrasher fans, but Russian people as well with his huge performances with them in the Olympics. People love him everywhere. But with those skills, shouldn't he be winning Stanley Cups? Like I said before, me and all of Thrasher nation loves him, but he d...
The season has ended for the Thrashers, with most fans going home dissapointed once again. Some things did improve, but a lot more things stayed broken and I'm here to help good ol' DW out. I'm going to go through the three positions (forward, defense, goalie) and review them, with some other little tid bits as well. So hang on for the ride as this is the first ever Thra...
Once 8 years of pass after drafting a player and still not seeing him play in any of the teams affiliates, the player slips off your radar and never usually gets back on. It's different with a kid named Ilya Nikulin. He has had never shown up on the stats side of things like most defenseman so I had never cared to follow him or his Russian teams but today I followed his ...

Weekend Recap in Buffalo

Finally this season, I was able to get to a Buffalo Sabres game. What's even more incredible is that I talked my girlfriend into going to two games, back to back. I'm not sure she liked me taking notes on my cell phone. SO, here is a recap of two very different games played at HSBC arena this weekend. New York Islanders, 10/16/2009 This was a great effort by the Buff...

Well folks what can we say about this last loss to the Thrashers. Yeah there we some bright spots, Penner got his 12th, the goaltending is still okay to good. But for some reason this team just doesn't seem to be able to put together a complete game. Skate miles and miles and pass lots with no results most of the time. This is truly a one line team when it comes to scorin...

Roy Lifts Sabres In Overtime

Buffalo (28-11-5) at Atlanta (20-19-6) Tonight, Buffalo began a seven game road trip that will last two weeks, beginning in Atlanta. The Sabres have struggled against the Thrashers lately, but did defeat them 4-3, despite being down 3-0 on January 1st. Atlanta is 12-3-3 all time against the Sabres at home, so Buffalo had to bring their best if they wanted to win the ...
Anyone with NHL Center Ice could clearly see 41 times a year that the franchises in Atlanta, Florida, and Phoenix are dieing. Old News right? Yeah, but with the swirling rumours of the NHL returning to Winnipeg, and the constant dismay of those who say "this again?", lets look at the situation a bit closer. On any given night, except maybe when the Leafs are in t...
Buffalo (36-21-10) at Atlanta (28-29-11) The Sabres visited the Thrashers Tuesday night as the second game of a current five game road trip. Buffalo was coming off of back to back losses against Minnesota and Detroit. Just 33 seconds into the game, Nik Antropov put Atlanta in the lead. The Sabres fell behind by a pair of goals in the two games prior to this one, and ...
With training camp right around the bend in another month, I decided to do a division by divisionpreview and what to expect from each team this season.

Before J.R. opened his mouth to criticize the Atlanta Thrashers on letting Dustin Byfuglien move back to his native position of defenseman, most likely nobody had a problem with him. In fact, like myself, they were probably Roenick fans prior to his comments made during a recent discussion he was involved in. His words are as follows... “That might be the stupide...
The Sabres dispatched Kovalchukless Atlanta by a final score of 4-1. Buffalo completely dominated the Thrashers, pouring 42 shots on Steve Mason. Atlanta could only whimper back, putting up a paltry 18 shots on Mr. All Star Ryan Miller. Here are some quick thoughts on tonight's game: -Butler may have played his best game as a Sabre tonight. He was excellent. Fantast...
Another loss. Another disappointing game for the Sabres. Don’t even bother with the “at least we got a point” phrase. The Sabres had a 2-0 lead at the end of the first period and were not able to hold off the Atlanta Thrashers. In front of just 10,000 at Phillips Arena, the Thrashers capitalized on Sabres mistakes all night long, and Dustin Byfuglien capped it off...

The Thrashers are looking to keep it rolling tonight in Colorado versus the Avalanche. The way the team is clicking right now, they should do just that. Being drug up the standings by the play of Dustin Byfuglien and Ondrej Pavelec, the Thrashers will seek a franchise tying sixth straight win tonight. Following a week of play that included victories over the Capitals (...

The Atlanta Thrashers "Sense of Urgency" should have nothing to do with the ownership & their cash problems. The real urgency is in the standings and the Schedule. With 24 games left, now is the time to make a move. After the March 27th game, against the cellar dwelling Ottawa Senators, all the remaining games are against a team that is above them in the standings as ...
After three days of rest and a visit from Dominik Hasek, the Sabres came out with an offensive mindset. A three-goal first period would be all the Sabres would need as they went on to frustrate the Thrashers all game long. Buffalo defeated Atlanta 8-2 at HSBC Arena on Saturday night. Jason Pominville opened the scoring with a goal just 24 seconds into the game. Evand...
The reports are becoming more and more numerous that the Atlanta Thrashers organization will be (or already has been) sold to True North Sports and Entertainment, which would move the team up to Winnipeg. There has been a lot of speculation as to how the Conferences will shuffle to make room for a team going from the Southeast Division in the Eastern conference to (ostens...

NHL Division Realignment

The move of the Thrashers to Winnipeg is all but complete at this point. Since this would mean one more team in the Western Conference than in the Eastern Conference, a division realignment is due. Instead of taking my preference into this process, I decided to take two objective approaches. The first method I tried to have each division only include one time zone and w...

Jetting Off to Winnipeg

On Tuesday, (May 31st, 2011) the NHL announced that the Atlanta Thrashers were being bought by True North and that the new owners would be relocating the franchise to Winnipeg, Manitoba. As someone who has enjoyed NHL hockey for more than three decades, having a franchise in Winnipeg is something I am strongly in favor of. But will it work this time? Like a lot of ot...
Above all, we love the game. For its speed, for its precision, for its grace, for its grit, for its passion, for its power to bring out the best in player and fan alike.

In both instances, the ownership group of ...

With Atlanta moving to Winnipeg this year the NHL is faced with a dilemma for the 2012-2013 season (as the NHL has come out and said Winnipeg will be in the Southeast Division for just this upcoming season before switching to the West). With that being said the NHL needs one more team in the east to make the conferences even. Being a Red Wings fan obviously selfishly I a...
