from Ben Wright at AtlantaThrashers.com,
Thrashers General Manager and Executive Vice President Don Waddell recently sat down with atlantathrashers.com for an exclusive one-on-one interview to discuss the reshaping of the team. Here is what the Thrashers general manager had to say.
Q. If training camp started today would you be happy to go into it with this group of players?
A. I’d be 100% content. First of all we’re going to have some younger players in the lineup and that’s a great opportunity for them and for our franchise. You look at defense with Enstrom being a second year player and Nic Havelid coming off a very good season last year. Adding a guy like Hainsey back there who can really move the puck will make a big difference. We’ve seen what Boris Valabik did in those last games down the stretch when he was here. Along with Ex and Kenny Klee we’re better on defense.
