One Down, Four To Go: Your Tuesday Hockey Links.

Why does it seem like every other team in the NHL with ownership issues are finding solutions, while the Thrashers are still having tires kicked?

Let's see what's floating around here, shall we?

Thrashers News:

Coach Craig Ramsay is questioning the courage of the players in Saturday's loss. After the season's over, I'm sure he can take them all to Oz and get them some. He also held one-on-one player meetings to discuss the game. Hopefully this'll help, but I still can't shake the fact that if someone'd done this in January the team wouldn't be in this position.


Around the NHL:

The Phoenix Coyotes are one more step closer to this ownership saga being over. Oh, never mind. Goldwater Institute is still a bunch of non-functional morons. Good to see.

Matt Cooke gets the rest of the season and the first round of the playoffs to think about what he's done wrong. This doesn't work for toddlers - how is it going to work for Cooke?

Blueshirt Banter wonders how 66 is going to handle all of this.

PensBurgh's take - I like the quote from Penguins GM Ray Shero. Totally spot on, and classy that he can apply his own standards to his guys.

Kudos to Broad Street Hockey for their photo choice on their take of Cooke's suspension.

Craig Anderson has signed a four year extension with the Ottawa Senators. I hope he knows what he's getting in to. I'm just convinced that he missed the Eastern Conference's ice girls.

It sure must be swell to congratulate a team on having a good second half of the season.

Puck Daddy's stat nerd (and Thrashers fan!) Matt Barr looks at what it takes for bubble teams to make it into the postseason. Hint: we don't have it.

The Wild are playing about as well as the Thrashers are. Actually, worse.

Rick DiPietro is wearing Chris Osgood's old Islanders mask. I'm actually shocked anyone kept that thing. I thought that once something was touched by a ginger, it had to be burnt. 

The Philadelphia Flyers have concocted a sports slushie drink that apparently is better than Gatorade and helps the players cool down faster so they don't die. I give the trainers credit; this is pretty damn cool. Pun not intended.

Evander Kane isn't the only Thrasher to try to teach Cooke a lesson:
