Inside the numbers: those dismal Thrashers

Over at The Iceman Bloggeth, Bill Tiller breaks down the performance of all NHL teams over the course of the Atlanta Thrashers nearly 10-year existence.  He includes a simple, straightforward criticism of Atlanta management that speaks volumes about whether Thrashers fans should hold optimism about the short-term future:

So, can anyone guess which would be the one and only team in this group [the bottom ten teams] that has… despite the less-than-stellar record of the past decade… chosen to remain with the same GM?

Unfortunately for Atlanta’s hockey faithful, with the current ownership situation there it doesn’t appear that the will to drive fundamental change exists within the organization.
