Same ole, Same ole
Early sampling size but still, now that they are in a true hockey market, have REAL fan support, media coverage out the *** and new ownership you'd think they would be poised for a true cup run? Ugh, not so much:

Still bottom five in:
Goals per Game
5-5 Goals%
Face-off %

I guess crap is crap no matter where it's played....

The only things that interest me are:

When the first STH sues to get out of their 3 years ticket obligation

What their attrition rate on initial STH after the 3 year period

I have a feeling this org is going to stay at the salary floor and "rebuild through the draft", with a minor league GM like Chevy, a minor league coach, and an owner that only knows about running an AHL really looks eerily similar to the Thrashers first years.

This team is actually worse than it was last year on paper.
