Hartley Named Thrashers Head Coach


TFP was right all along about this, and they were the first. Not reliable? Think again…., these guys are more right than wrong.

(Jan. 14th) –- The Atlanta Thrashers have hired Bob Hartley as their new head coach Tuesday. Hartley, who replaces Curt Fraser, was fired less than a month ago by the Colorado Avalanche after a disappointing 10-8-9-4 start.

In just over 4 seasons with Colorado, the Thrashers new bench boss went 193-109-48 and he was the first NHL coach in 35 years to take a team to the conference final in his first four seasons
