perhaps the most interesting story about the thrashers unbeaten season is the fact that they have failed in their previous decade of existence to do it before. despite having superstars like heatley, savard, hossa, and kovalchuk come and go the franchise has never been able to achieve a perfect season until the past 8 months of the calender. after all if college football teams can win 4 seasons in a row why cant this be achieved by a team that has had so many stars. the answer of course must be that the stars continue to leave for b-rate prospects or nothing at all. despite the fact that the team is clearly better as a full team and not built around one star it will surely fail to achieve this feat a second time. perhaps the only solution is for the team to be sold to a new owner, one committed to going undefeated more than just once.
Also don't forget to add that the 82-0-0 means nothing because the team will be so used to winning by now that they'll go soft in the playoffs and get swept in 4 games by a #8 seed from a more "traditional" market.
