John Anderson and assistants Randy Cunneyworth, Todd Nelson and Steve Weeks will not return for another season.

Who replaces these 4?

This is almost the best news we've received this year. I say "almost," because not only did the organization not fire DW, they PROMOTED his sorry ass! Ah well, at least he's no longer the GM. Best of luck to Dudley's actually making intelligent decisions (read: that he actually does what's good for the best of the team).

Well the rumors were true. I think JA did well with a bad hand, Dudley was a miracle worker last offseason, and DW is the luckiest man in hockey to still have a job at this point.

I asked about this a while ago and everyone says its not possible for Dudley to become gm... Thrashers have 8th overall... i could see Dudley trading it because when he was the panthers gm and lighting gm he traded them...

Curt Fraser says hi. At least Anderson came close to the playoffs.

As for new coaches, I think Therrien HAS to be high on the list.

Hmm. Happy to see coaching changes are being made. We'll see how the DW / Dudley thing works out. It sounds like it'll be roughly the same situation with Dudley scouting talent and DW doing all the business, in which case it doesn't seem like much of a change but better than nothing. I would have liked DW gone so we could start completely over, but this is a start.

I'd like that...Another name being mentioned on the main board is John Torchetti.

Well Torchetti appears to be Dudley's favorite option, he has followed him around several stops in the NHL. Florida, Tampa, and Chicago. He has had the intern label as an NHL coach several times after other coaches were fired, but never officially gotten an NHL job.

Our first season, Curt Fraser might have done the best coaching job in this teams history. That team was abysmal. One of the least talented teams the NHL has seen in decades. Easily the least talented expansion team from the last two expansion periods.

I don't know how the hell DW keeps a job with this team. One of the owners said they like/love DW. I guess this is proof they really do. I thought it was vote of confidence talk at the time.

It is great to see Dudley is the GM. Just hope he doesn't have to answer to DW. Much like the Falcons have given TD basically full authority over the personal and McKay doesn't get involve. I hope this is similar to this.

glad to see my man DW keep a job. This should be a great tandem if DW can control the trades and Dudley evaluates talent within and outside of the organization.

Would love to see Craig Mactavish as the new coach

DW was promoted because he's a very smart business man. He's well liked, personally, by the fans and also by the rest of the management team. Keeping him in the organization is certainly a good choice. It was just time for him to lose his GM abilities.

Dudley now needs to focus on Pavel Kubina and Maxim Afinogenov. Both of these guys need to be re-signed.

Try to convince Moose to retire and step behind the bench as goalie coach. As for an actual coach, there are a bunch of options. Craig MacTavish, Guy Carbonneau, Dennis Savard, Ted Nolan, Mike Keenan (Please, god, no), Michel Therrien, Dave Lewis, Kevin Constantine, and I'm sure that there are others I'm forgetting. The only ones from that list that I'd have any interest in seeing in Atlanta are Craig MacTavish and Guy Carbonneau.

next coach.....Michel Therrien ? Bob Hartley ? Guy Carbonneau ? Guy Boucher ?

since i live in Montreal, these are the current "french" coaches currently looking for a head coach gig.

To this list, maybe John Stevens ? Craig McTavish ?

Older guys just think it is really crazy for a monkey to coach an ice hockey team and don't take him seriously enought. I would let him coach in the minors.
