Ouch. I know Byron Dafoe needed to go back to work, but there had to be another team he could have signed with even for a little less money. Dafoe (and the rest of the Thrashers) lost to Montreal in his Thrasher debut.
One of Dafoe’s challenges with Atlanta is definitely going to be backstopping a team that doesn’t play defense, and doesn’t really seem to know how.
Dafoe is in for a long season.
Also, please note that Atlanta seems to be spending billions of dollars paying around 10 different goalies maybe they can get some of them to play as defensemen, but wearing the goalie gear. Just a thought.
