    ATLANTA (Oct. 17, 2007) -- Bob Hartley has been relieved of his duties as the Atlanta Thrashers head coach, according to Executive Vice President and General Manager Don Waddell.

    “This is always a very difficult decision to make, but we feel that this is the best thing for our team right now,” said Waddell. “We thank Bob for his service over the last four-plus seasons, but we believe that a new approach is necessary to get the club back on track and compete at the level we feel we are capable of.”

    Hartley, who was hired as the franchise’s second head coach on Jan. 13, 2003, posted a 136-123-32 record during his tenure in Atlanta and led the Thrashers to their first-ever Southeast Division championship last season. Prior to his time with the Thrashers, Hartley guided the Colorado Avalanche from June 30, 1998 to Dec. 19, 2002, where he posted a 193-118-48 record in 359 regular-season contests and captured the Stanley Cup in 2001.


Good lord, I didn't expect this 6 games in!
But then again, I didn't expect the Thrashers to be the last winning team either, especially with their roster and a healthy Lehtonen...

What a pitiful time for Atlanta sports...
