Grade Recent Thrashers Transactions

There has been a lot of discussion about the Atlanta Thrashers management and Don Waddell as GM. Personally, I think we have seen an uptick in the quality of decisions the last 2 seasons. On the other hand, the decisions made between 2005-2007 (Bobby Holik, Todd White, etc) were bad in my opinion. Since Waddell has been GM for the entire history of the Thrasher it is all part of his legacy--and the overall numbers are not very good.

However, looking over the moves of the last two seasons I generally approve of most of these decisions. To illustrate that point I've created a "Grade Your GM Worksheet" below. It lists off the trades, signings, re-signings and waiver claims since late 2007. There is column where you can enter your own grade of these moves. Enjoy.
