For one team that's covered on this blog, pre-season being over is almost a blessing. For the other, it was a solid outing in games that, while meaningless standings wise, still shows the development and growth of a franchise.
I'll let you pick which is which.
Anywho, final cuts are coming here shortly, and the NHL rosters'll be finalized. Once the rosters are set, which they have to be by Wednesday, I'll dash off a season preview for each team - it's useless to do so when you're not sure who'll be on your squad.
One positive for the Thrashers - goaltending and defense have been solid. The line changing and scratches and whatnot have hampered an offense who, generally, is unfamiliar with each other and who'll need some consistency before they click. Friday'll be here before you know it. Time for our annual opening night victory over the Caps - I honestly don't think that DC knows what to expect.
