I learned this lesson in desperation on trade deadline day in 2008.

I had a white Enstrom Thrashers jersey, and my favorite forward on the team was Pascal Dupuis, so I decided to get his name on it. A couple days after I sent it out, Idiot Waddell traded Dupuis to Pittsburgh as a throw-in for the Hossa trade.

Needless to say, I called the creating company in desperation, and they asked which name I wanted instead. I said the first name that came to mind....

Eric ****ing Perrin

I could have gone with Slava Kozlov, one of Atlanta's all-time most loved players. I could have gone with Mark Recchi, a guaranteed HOF'er (The only Thrasher that will ever get that honour). Other options included Little, Kovalchuk, Hedberg, Lehtonen or Slater...but I chose Eric ****ing Perrin...
