Damian Rhodes
Pasi Nurminen
Norm Maracle
Kari Lehtonen
Mike Dunham(I think)
Johan "Moose" Hedberg

That's just to name a few.

Kari was also quite fond of getting drunk with the Gladiators.

Our old team will be called the Winnipeg Jets.

Not sure how I feel about that, but it's not particularly a good feeling.

Yea, I'm not too fond of the name considering that the original Winnipeg Jets franchise is still active. It's pretty tough to read threads on the old Thrashers board with Peggers referring to it as "their" team and "welcoming" Thrashers fans to the board. I understand, but it's tough to read. Such a damn shame.

Rhodes was done in by Amanda John. His groin never recovered fro hooking up with her.
Norm Maracle may well have been the unhealthiest looking professional athlete I ever saw.
Nurm's(bless his drunk ass heart)career ending injury dealt a crippling blow to Lehtonen's development.

John Kruk? For reals though, I agree - Norm was fat. He had an awesome save on Pavel Bure back in the 00-01 season though. Bure was pissed.

Am I alone in wondering how Hnilicka would've performed with a real NHL team? He had some great games with us, and many nights where he would turn away 40+ shots (although, we'd still lose).

Pasi Nurminen is still one of my favorite Thrashers of all time.

I was reading a profile on Burmistrov the other day on some site called Your Winnipeg Jets and it said "Burmistrov was drafted by OUR organization last year with the 8th pick" So apparently not only did they buy the Thrashers future but their past too.....

And Tim Thomas has always reminded me of Pasi Nurminen....except the whole winning thing, of course.

What upsets me about it is, it would be the equivalent of when the Houston Oilers moved, instead of getting an expansion team, they moved the Jacksonville Jaguars to Houston a decade later and changed their name to the Houston Oilers.

BUT, its much better than the Manitoba Moose.

It's still beyond me how Maracle won a cup in Detroit.

Whatever happened to Byron Dafoe? I remember when he was signed it was supposed to be the end of all our goalie issues and then he just fell off the earth.

That really sucks to hear that. No respect from the North, as usual.

Byron Dafoe was another victim of the Curse. He ****ed up his back when he slipped on a patch of ice outside his hotel in Washington. A NHL player slipped on some ice. As Bart Simpson would say, "The ironing is delicious."

they're clueless, but they'll learn. most of the info they know about the team is from TSN and these boards. they'll learn.

aside from a handful of caustic *******s, the people of winnipeg are pretty cool and considerably nicer than the Hamilton contingent, who aren't exactly angels as our Predsfriends will attest.

Dudley initially turned the Leafs down to come to Atlanta. Something told me Dudley would end up in Toronto.

Was it in Washington or Ottawa? I remember reading he slipped while getting coffee with Shawn McEachern. Aside from the curse, Dafoe just wasn't that good. A bit past his prime.

The feeling is mutual. I feel confident that I can speak for all of us in saying we are very happy to be welcome. With all this crap somewhat behind us, I find it healing to say...

GO PREDS!!!!
