Power of Positive Thought...

There are actually quite a few positives to take away from this season if you're a Thrashers fan. Yes, the record is not one of them. At all. But we have had a few good things go down.

  • 2 winning months in a row - for our team, that's an accomplishment. We were 6-5-1 for Feburary, and so far with 3 games left in March we're 7-3-0. Not half bad, especially our March record so far.
  • Slava Kozlov leading the league in power play points and being 6 for 7 on the shootout. Unreal.
  • Rich Peverley being the best waiver wire pick up of the season
  • Having 4 (and potentially 5 with Army having 17) 20 goal scorers on the year: Kovy, Little, Kozzy, and White. Kovy's got 37 and Little has 31, good for 2nd most among league right wingers (tied with Ignila behind Hossa - and if you're doing a search on, Little's still listed as a center).
  • Todd White breaking his previous season record for points - he currently has 66.
  • Marty Reasoner managing to be +10 on this team.
  • Toby Enstrom and Zach Bogosian being a fun and exciting defensive pairing that's effective and can score - Toby is +7 with 4G 21A, and ZBo is +6 with 5G 8A during a shortened season.
  • Captain Kovy being #7 in the league in points and 4th in goals - one good streak and he'll be #2 again - so much for the slow start.
  • Bryan Little being #4 in the league with a 19.7 shot percentage.
  • Our 10th ranked powerplay, which is pleasant since our PK is #29.
  • Kari, when healthy and motivated, has the ability to be a total beast. His stats don't show how well he's played recentlty
Anyone have any other positives? Please, leave 'em in the comments.

Yeah I got a positive...Thrashers fans actually starting to get excited about our team again. I know it's been a tough season but to see us pull through and start playing as a team is a hell of a way to end the season.

We have some nice pieces in place, I just hope we can keep them in place in June & July.

Nice post, L!

LOL - the sig kinda killed the anyon. ;)

I agree - we're excited again. The boards aren't quite as... evil. For the most part. I think that we can keep these guys together and add a cog or two that'll fit in pretty well. Dare I say it, I think that DW did pretty ok this off season and he might do better this time around.

Ok, ok... I'll bite my tongue. :D

how about all the SHG that have popped up with new enthusiasm on the PK? That is a big one there.
