Shocker From Thrash Land

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that the Thrashers won't go outside the organization for a coach this season.

Not shocking considering the issues the Atlanta Spirit are having financially. Heck, they even cut the intern program things were so bad. Still that little issue between the Spirit and former partner, Steve Belkin, going on. Doesn't look like it's going away any time soon.

So that means either Don Waddell or Brad McCrimmon will coach the team the rest of the season. If Don wanted to name Chicago Wolves coach John Anderson the team's coach - he would have done it by now. Something there between the two men that has never really sat well, so I don't see it happening.

Heck, if the team doesn't make the playoffs this year, the whole staff might be out anyway so it's easier to look for a new general manager and then have him find his coach.

By the way, it's weird that Les Jackson and Brett Hull are co-general mangers in Dallas, but I am happy for Les. He's a good man who has waited a long time and I hope he get s a fair chance to do what he needs to do to get that franchise back on track.
