Kovy won the Rocket Richard, was drafted by and spent a loooong time with the Thrashers.

A young, gap-toothed Heatley made unfortunate history with the team.

Slava Kozlov and Marian Hossa carried the team on their backs and made the playoffs one season.

Holik, Bondra, Savard, Tkachuk, Recchi, Chelios, Kovalchuk, Savard, Heatley, Hossa, Byfuglien, Enstrom, Pavelec, Kane all laced up the skates for the team- that's a lot of big names for such a short history!

The Thrashers were an exciting team to watch and with all their roster turnover were always a wildcard as to how successful they would be. They will be remembered as the posterchild for Canadian aggression, with fans across the country happy to see them die. That is twice Canada has stolen a team from my city now, and twice that crooked owners were more than happy to play along.

So I guess to remember the Thrashers in a word: sad.
