With Chicago down 2-0 in the series to Vancouver, they need a bit of a shake up. 6’8″ John Scott attempting to play the role of Dustin Byfuglien is at the least really interesting.

The second half of the 2010-11 season hasn’t been very friendly to Dustin Byfuglien (and the Thrashers by extension) and it might get even tougher as he could miss Tuesday’s game against the Devils.

Like most general managers in the playoff picture, Thrashers GM Rick Dudley wants to make his team better. But he also knows that he shouldn’t compromise a promising future for a slightly better present.
Feb 23, 2011, 5:15 PM EST
The Thrashers may be struggling at the moment, but the job GM Rick Dudley’s done there in changing the culture is already noticeable. That’s why he was rewarded with a four-year contract extension.
Feb 15, 2011, 5:30 PM EST
Dustin Byfuglien was set to become a free agent at the end of this season. That’s not happening now as he’s signed a five-year extension to stay in Atlanta for $26 million.

The Thrashers activated all-star caliber defenseman Tobias Enstrom from the IR today. The team missed him badly, even if he slips under the radar compared to his partner in crime Dustin Byfuglien.

The Thrashers placed Tobias Enstrom on the injured reserve retroactive to January 22nd because of his broken finger.
Feb 3, 2011, 9:00 AM EST
The Thrashers are really struggling right now, so it shouldn’t be surprising that GM Rick Dudley might be working the phones for a possible trade or two.

Ondrej Pavelec carried the Thrashers to victory to keep the Hurricanes at bay in the East and frustrate Washington’s struggling offense a little bit more.

During Chicago’s “Great Fire Sale” of 2010 in their Stanley Cup afterglow, Patrick Sharp was a hotly rumored player to be moved. Chicago stuck by him and they should be thankful they did.
