lafountain Posted June 20, 2008 Report Share Posted June 20, 2008 The Atlanta Thrashers hired John Anderson as their new Coach. Anderson was previously the Coach of Atlanta's AHL team the Chicago Wolves. Well at least Waddell hired a coach before the draft this time, unlike the expansion draft and the teams first draft in which their first coach was hired after both of those events. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=241180&...=headlines_main Then again, maybe they didn't hire him. http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=425734 But apparantly WGN in Chicago is reporting that he was hired. Very strange. So Anderson may or may not have about 16 hours to prepare for the draft. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
