The Thrashers seem to be making the right moves in the off-season by mixing up the personnel on and off the ice. They're putting together a young core, combined with some veteran leadership - I think Mr. Byfuglien has an idea of what it takes by now. They're also in a very winnable division, making that path to the playoffs much more available.

How long will it take for them to advance beyond the first round?

MY impression, there are two heartbreakers left in the ATL before these kind really gel. I don't know that they'll even make the playoffs this year, and the following year may be a close call. But guys like Kane, Bergfors, etc seem to be developing in the right direction. Mark my words, in 2013, the Thrashers will have a first round advancement.

i think two fo the players you guys got in the devils trade are going to be greatly important to you. those being bergfors and cormier (if he avoids jailtime)

bergfors is no doubt someone who plays the style of a top 6 forward and for a rookie did it well last season.
cormier has the potential to be a great 3rd line center.

About 2 years. The team isn't good enough to get to the playoffs just yet, as much as I want them to. Lots of rebuilding to do.

Whoa! Did a fucking tumbleweed just roll by?

Looks like there's not a whole lot of Thrasher fans here.

Lol... No there is not... But if you have any questions about hockey feel free to ask. I'm sure I can speak for Tox in saying that, we could definitely use more hockey fans, and no question is a dumb question. The only way to not be a noob is to know how the game is played and root for your team.

Sweet, I know some basics, but I'll just have to watch more games to figure out how it's played, not just the rules.

Thrashers and Sabres at the end of OT now. Fucking sabres tied it up at the end. Think this going down as a tie since both teams are scoreless at the end of OT

I'm a Penguins fan (originally from Pittsburgh) living in Atlanta. It drives me nuts that none of the people I know down here are hockey fans. Oh well, I've really been drinking the Thrashers Koolaid as of late... when they aren't playing the Pens. Byfuglien has even become one of my favorite players!

They're on a roll, I def see them making the playoffs and possibly winning their first series. They're not cup contenders yet though.
