Obviously the Thrashers are bad. It’s never a good sign when you’re looking to Nashville and saying “Damn. I wish I had their crappy record.” But are the Thrashers really this bad? Thrasher GM Don Waddell says Curt Fraser’s coaching job is safe, which means that either: A) Waddell is lying; B) Waddell thinks his team is really, really bad; or C) Fraser once saved Waddell’s life.
It’s not like the Thrashers should be undefeated, but they do have some talent (Ilya Kovalchuk, Slava Kozlov, and Dany Heatley). That should have at least gotten them past the Panthers once.
