Disappointed In Atlanta

from Barry Melrose of ESPN,
A few months ago, we thought Thrashers GM Don Waddell was nuts, pulling a Knute Rockne and predicting that Atlanta would make the playoffs. The Thrashers went on to play themselves into a postseason spot, but then, they hit a wall. Now, they have dropped out of the playoff picture. The only way Waddell's prediction will come true is if the team wins its four games and gets a few favors from the teams above them in the standings. I don't know why this happened to the Thrashers. Everyone was competing, players like Marc Savard and Kovalchuk were storming up the scoring list and the team overcame huge goaltending woes. Now, for all intents and purposes, they are out of the playoffs. There's no reason for it. They proved they were a good team. It's one of my big disappointments over the past few weeks.
