Afternoon Line

“We have put offers on the table that make sense for our team going forward and that we think are fair with the reality that Kovy is one of the great, great players in the game.”

-Atlanta Thrashers Owner Bruce Levenson.  More on this topic from Craig Custance of the Sporting News.

Waddell Will Keep His Job

From Craig Custance at the AJC,

“We have a very, very busy few months coming up,” Levenson told the AJC. “I believe we’re closer than a lot of people may think or give us credit for. Less than a month ago we were in the playoffs, it’s easy to see our team and see where we need to improve. We have the assets and cap room to make those improvements.”

And Waddell is the right man to make those improvements?

“Don has built an organization of 17 top-notch hockey people, those people will be involved in this. [Keeping Waddell] might not be the popular thing to do in some circles but I think it would be foolish and short-sighted to tear down this organization at this juncture.”
