SOCKEY ON HOCKEY

Like John Kincade, only I know what the fuck I'm talking about!

LIVE FROM NY… IT’S SOCKEY TONIGHT (again)!

Let’s get this party started! Four in a row begins tonight here in MSG. While we wait for the game to start--and hopefully they won’t score 30 seconds in--I wanted to break a bit of news regarding the Thrashers goaltending issues that have arisen recently. As all of the Thrasher fans know, coach pulled Kari Letsomein after giving up a soft goal in game one. Mitch Hedburg was in net for game two and did a decent job of keeping the Thrashers in the game. Some not as reliable sources were saying that Mooch was pegged to start last KNIGHTS game as well, but Tuesday morning it was announced that the Finnish Sieve would be back in net. My sources tell me that Hartley had decided on Hedburg, but following comments from Thrasher GM Don Waddle in Tuesday’s AJC that Kari was “the future”, Don Waddle himself made the decision on Kari playing game 3. Seeing his career in Atlanta in a death spiral, Bob Hartley begrudgingly went with Letsomein and then, as an obvious f.u. to the GM, left Kari in to get hammered 7-0. I feel confident reporting that this has sealed Hartley’s fate in Atlanta, and as soon as this series is over, the Atlanta Thrashers will be looking for a new bench boss.

GAME ON!
