All these teams are going to get it in the next little while because A)they’re still new to the league(as new as 10 years ago). B)they’re all have new buildings(yes the Pond is still new). Is anyone else other then me and Thrashers fans pulling for them to win that divison??? I want to see that first line of Heatley – Savard – Kovalchuk in the playoffs. It would be great for hockey in Atlanta! They’re also an offensive minded team which is ALWAYS good for the game.
