Shakeup in the Southeast

Hartley's gone in Atlanta.'s reporting Don Wadell has cut loose Bob Hartley and will take over duties behind the bench for the Thrashers. While notes the slow start, they should have made a point to stress the team has lost 10 straight if you include the Rangers sweep of the Thrash in the 2006-07 playoffs last April. One could have expected both Wadell and Hartley to be handed walking papers after a retooled-for-the-playoffs team fell down and went boom, but that wasn't the case. Hartley survived, Wadell survived.

Now Bob is gone... And one has to wonder how much more time ownership will give Wadell to make something out of the team he's been stewarding?
