Kaptain Kovalchuk vs. Antagonizing Avery. 7PM, 7 Jan 2010
 
Yeah, early GDT, I know.

This time, we break the freakin' curse. It'll be colder than a hooker's heart, the roads will probably be icy and covered with the half-inch of snow that might fall.

So, if you're not going to brave the elements, pull out your generator, fire it up, and turn on the TV to watch intently as the Thrashers battle it out with the Rangers.

Taking the thread in another direction, here are some pictures (warning: probably not dialup or EDGE cellular friendly) that have yet to be posted in our GDTs this year. This is in the hopes that it helps break the team's curse...

Let's go Thrashers!

I'm trying not to give up hope in this season yet. I'm trying to believe we can make the playoffs. But right now with Anderson i am losing it all. If they lose tomorrow and nothing has changed than i will have given up hope. If it takes your GM 10 or more losses in a row to realize the coach has to go than DW needs to resign.

I'm so pissed right now because this was a wasted season. With anyone else, we are all happy and are enjoying the season like we should be. Probably 10-15 games over 500 too. We wouldn't be making threads about the defense or about trading Kovalchuk.

It's like the organization just loves losing so they do nothing to change it.

Washington Generals - 3
NY Rangers - 14


Actually I do hope this team does turn it around & start winning. Will I hold my breath? Not a chance.

AtlantaWhaler 01-06-2010 02:28 PM

A loss here and Casino Night gets REAL interesting...

Rhodes 81 01-06-2010 03:48 PM

can't wait to see how many goals we're down by when they score the empty netter!!!

Curly with two goals and Metalark (sp?) with a goal and an assist.

Telfo 01-06-2010 04:43 PM

i will be braving the elements to go to the game and watch the loss with about 500 of my closest friends.

dj4aces 01-06-2010 04:51 PM

Darren Eliot did a live chat today at the SportSouth website, and one of the things he said is "changes will be made" if the poor play and losing continues. Anything less than a 3-1 record in this homestand, and I bet someone gets the ax.

Now, I don't completely blame Anderson. Weeks is doing screw-all when it comes to Pavelec and Hedberg this year. We have watched in horror as both have regressed dramatically since the start of the season. I want Weeks fired first, not Anderson. I would be content with firing both at the same time. However, I don't want to see just Anderson fired. Both or Weeks alone.

We have a crapload of talent here, and its clicked before. What changed? We are in danger of falling below .500 for the first time all season. The guys really need to get it together.

John Cena* 01-06-2010 05:14 PM

dj i want you to think back to the winning days.... we won EARLY in the season when teams didn't completely find themselves yet. We aren't winning now because we are not consistent. Other teams are. Here are games we should have lost. The game against the Canes when we somehow came back, the game against Montreal when somehow the Habs made Pavelec look like an all star by shooting the puck directly into him, i can argue that we should have lost to the Stars. We has some puck luck and we don't have it anymore so now when teams get 30+ shots a game chances are there scoring atleast 4+ goals especially with this no defensive system.

BreakTheWallsDown 01-06-2010 05:29 PM

All I can say is I'm done defending Anderson at this point. I stick up for the guy and this is how he repays me? :P

I wont stop defending Pavelec though. Something strange is going on here because that kid is an awesome goalie and lately it seems like we'd have a better chance of winning with an empty net. Pavs showed us this season that he does have the skills to make it in this league but he needs some help. I have every bit of confidence that he will get his inconsistency problems worked out and go back to his play from the beginning of the season. Whether that happens this year or next, I don't know.

This GDT ought to be called "The Rush For Milk & Bread Edition"...... ;)

No. We won early because the guys were sticking up for each other, communicating well, and seeing the ice clearly.

Go watch the game we played against the Rangers earlier this year. Then go watch the game we just played last night. There is a stark difference in how this team looks on the ice, and how the team reacts to different situations. The Kovalchuk of now looks nothing like the Kovalchuk of October.

Does this support the notion that Anderson should be fired? Maybe. However, Steve Weeks is a cancer that has plagued our goalies for a very long time, and he needs to be purged from our system immediately.

Look at the Pavelec of before, and the Pavelec of now. Look at the Moose of before, and the Moose of now. Something is very wrong with our goalies, and it's not the goalies themselves. If they were playing better, they could have stolen some of these games for us. However, bad positioning and bad rebounds have caused some very big mishaps.

It's all in the coaching of these guys, and it's not Anderson who was a goalie to begin with. I've wanted Weeks fired for years because I think he's a moron when it comes to training, conditioning, and coaching our goalies. If the fall off in their play from October to January hasn't shown that to people, I have no idea what will.

Georgia Dawg 01-06-2010 06:28 PM

The streak ends tomorrow. Count on it.

I am bound to be right sooner or later on this.

Magnus Fulgur 01-06-2010 06:39 PM

The only streaks that could end tomorrow are those of Waddell, Kovalchuk, Anderson,and Weeks getting paychecks from Atlanta Spirit.

John Cena* 01-06-2010 07:41 PM

i disagree DJ. Pavelec only looked good because the other teams made him look good. I also disagree with the other parts. We were lucky with puck luck and now Pavelec doesn't have it anymore. No one is taking shots directly into his chest lol.

Lehtonen is still >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Pavelec. I never changed my mind because i knew Pavelec would falter.

IMO Pavelec played 1 good game this season. That Montreal game was puck luck. They should have won 10-1 but their forwards shot it directly into Pavelecs chest when they had wide open nets

Rhodes 81 01-06-2010 09:21 PM

seriously, an inch of snow and all of a sudden southerners flip out like a nuclear bomb is going off. it's kinda sad. i understand we aren't as well equipped for snow and ice as northerners are but it's not like it's a blizzard

Aaronxxx 01-06-2010 09:33 PM

i'll be going to the game tomorrow night.

looking forward to the games before sunday, i think we can take tomorrow. washington will be another story. i wouldn't be entirely upset at a loss tomorrow if it means there will be some desks being cleared out in the front office.

I find it amusing, to be quite honest. ZOMG BREAD MILK PANIC PANIC AAHHHHH.

Seriously, half an inch is barely a dusting. The only reason I'm cautious is because I know everyone else will be freaking out about the WHITE DEATH FROM ABOVE and driving like morons.

BreakTheWallsDown 01-07-2010 01:02 AM

I was talking to my mom who is a Nurse at a hospital near here and they told her and all the other nurses to bring an extra set of clothes and pajamas and they must bring their own pillows and blankets to work tomorrow. It is mandatory because they expect to be snowed in. :biglaugh:

Between the snow insanity and the bcs title game, it is likely going to be one of those "relocate the Thrashers" attendance kind of nights.

Cobb county is making a call on closing school early at 11AM and it hasn't even started snowing.

Yeah...Forsyth did that last night!

This has got to be the silliest thing ever for most of this board (all hockey fans) to see.

AtlantaWhaler 01-07-2010 09:13 AM

Moose is in tonight.
