Don Waddell Wins CnB's Bracket for NHL's Worst Post-Lockout GM

This is one of the unfortunate things we can't shake (yet) of the Atlanta Thrashers' legacy: Don Waddell's ineptitude. I have to say, Scott Reynolds was merciful in ignoring the Hainsey and Antropov contracts, yet Waddell still won convincingly. He was also merciful in not looking at some of Waddell's atrocious choices for head coach, or the maintenance of a pretty rough scouting department. As a Winnipeg fan, I'm sorry to Atlanta fans that it turned out this way. You all got a raw deal, and deserved better.

"Do Something": A common lament for losing teams but not great advice for resolving actual problems

I think a lot of us at AIH are on-board with the idea that the Jets are on the right track, but this is worth the read because it's Jonathan Willis and it's a great point to reiterate. It's especially important because I think there are still some Jets fans who think that big moves need to be made. I can't say this enough: we knew this was a fringe team going into the year - only the most delusional thought this would be a surefire, top-level team. There's some talent to build on, we'll have talent coming via the draft...chill. Should be easy to do that in Winnipeg.
