With all that going on, Thrashers president Don Waddell still finds time to watch a little hockey. It’s in his blood after all.
Waddell moved full-time into the duties of team president in April after serving as the franchise’s general manager since its inception. While it’s been a busy offseason, , Waddell recently traveled to Lake Placid to watch three of the team’s prospects compete in evaluation camps for the 2011 World Junior Championships.
“I’m not going to lose that,” Waddell said. “I’m going to go out and watch games. You are going to see me take team trips.”
Waddell’s biggest challenge this summer, he said, has been trying to capitalize on the excitement generated by the team’s busy offseason. Rick Dudley was promoted to general manager, a new coaching staff is in place and there have been significant roster changes through trades and free-agent moves.
