Did you honestly expect any publication to cast the Thrashers in a shining light, given the way this organization has been run since inception? I expected more pot shots than that, and left pleasantly surprised.

This was a great feature on Kane, and I really hope he does well for us. And if management (old, new, whatever) can to turn this organization around, maybe Atlanta will one day become a formidable force in the league.

It was the first thing I thought as well after watching it, The Hockey News is a Canadian Flag waving xenophobic news outlet. You cannot expect anything less out of them unfortunately.

If we were managed even half-decently, this all would stop. The Thrashers, as much as we all hate it, will continue to be crapped on by the media until meaningful changes are made.

Til then, this is nothing new, and nothing unexpected.

Look, THN is a Toronto mag that has a heavily Canadian readership. They cater to their market, and do it well. I read them from time to time, but know what I am getting when I do.

Even IF this was a well run org, we would get the shaft from those guys in articles and attitude.

I love Evander Kane and Niclas Bergfors. Young and speedy with nice hands.

I disagree. Build a winner, be consistent, and you'll get respect.

Yes, they're a Toronto publication. Yes, they come across as douchey. But the way I see it, we kind of deserve it. The only way to quell negativity is to do something positive. We have yet to do that.

Well, you're wrong. Toronto media hates anything south of the border that isn't Original Six.

They've got a special hard on for Southern markets like Phoenix, Florida, Carolina and Atlanta. Tampa and Carolina win the Cup and all they can do is complain that they have such a cream puff division that they get to coast all season. Almost as if they played HS team for 82 games.

When I lived in Toronto in the 90's most people were total jerks about anything American.

The history of the franchise tells a different story from the comments in this thread.
