With six weeks to go in the hockey season, Thrashers coach John Anderson gave AJC staff writer Carroll Rogers his thoughts on such things as the state of the Thrashers, his first season as an NHL head coach and his relationship with Ilya Kovalchuk.
Q. Do you think the pieces are here to build this team around?
A. We have a good young core of players. We’ve got (Boris) Valabik, we’ve got (Nathan) Oystrick, we’ve got (Tobias) Enstrom, (Zach) Bogosian, just on the back end, (Bryan) Little. (Ilya) Kovalchuk is not an old man. We’ve got (Rich) Peverley, who’s still a young guy. There are some great pieces here. Now we have to draft some more good players and hopefully fit in some older ones in the offseason that’ll help us.
