Thrashers prepare for final week of frustrating season

Over the course of the past several weeks, there have been many different words Thrashers fans have used to describe the way this 2010-11 season has turned out. Some have even been fit to print here. But Nik Antropov’s comments following Saturday’s 3-2 loss in Boston, one that officially eliminated them postseason play, seems to contain the word most appropriate.

“It’s frustrating, that’s the feeling right now”, the Thrashers forward said after the game. “Nothing else but frustration.”

The key word there would be frustrating…or frustration, take your pick.

Indeed Antropov’s words could accurately sum up the feeling after losing yet another close game. They led 2-1 early in the second period after Evander Kane’s 19th goal of the season. However, the Thrashers failed to convert their early success into a win.

After intercepting a weak outlet pass from Zach Bogosian behind Ondrej Pavelec’s net, Danielle Paille knotted the score at two-all just under five minutes later. At the time Boston was killing off a delay of game penalty by former Thrasher Shane Hnidy.

Yeah…frustrating.

Then in the third, Bogosian once again gift wrapped the puck for the Bruins with another turnover and fellow defenseman Johnny Oduya had little option but to take down the charging Michael Ryder. However, he converted on the penalty shot and the Bruins had the 3-2 margin they would eventually win by.

Bogosian had an up close and personal vantage point for all three Boston goals and his –26plus/minus rating is “tops” on the team in that stat. Antropov is next on the current roster with a –14, (Rich Peverley was a –16 before being traded in February to Boston).

Yessir-ee, Zach has had a frustrating season to say the least.

But the “F” word could also sum up how the second half of this season has played out for the Thrashers. After playing to a 22-15-6 record and 50 points after 43 games played…and stop me if you’ve heard this one before… they failed to take advantage of that success and stumbled from that point on. Since the 3-2 win in south Florida on January 5, they have gone a disappointing 11-18-6 since with just 4 regulation wins in those 35 games.

The Thrashers will now prepare to finish off the remaining four games in this frustrating campaign. And although they themselves are now mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, all four remaining matchups will have some impact on others who remain in the thick of the playoff race. None more so than the two scheduled later this week. Thursday and Friday night they’ll face the New York Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes. Both are scratching and clawing to earn a spot in this spring’s great hunt for Lord Stanley’s Cup.

Following their shootout win in Philly, the Rangers have 89 points with 3 games left to play. Buffalo defeated Carolina in overtime, giving the Sabres 90 and the Canes 87.

As for Atlanta, no matter the outcome of this week’s games they’ll finish in fourth place in the Southeast Division. They can finish no higher than 10th in the conference and no lower than 12th. The most points they can achieve is 86 if they take all 8 available in the final four games.

Last season they were second in the southeast and tenth in the conference with an 83-point season.

Looking down the road, they’ll own a draft pick somewhere in the range of 6th to 8th overall in June’s NHL entry draft. After that, it’s free agent signing season beginning on July 1, then we wait for training camp and preseason in the fall.

One of those exhibition games will be against the Ottawa Senators in Conception Bay South, Newfoundland. The two will play there after that was named Kraft Hockeyville 2011. It’ll be the second time the Thrashers have participated one of these games. Prior to the 2007 season, they beat the New York Islanders 4-3 in overtime in North Bay, Ontario.

Until then, though, they’ll just be finishing out this frustrating season. But at least the Thrashers will have a chance to share some of that frustration with the Rangers and Hurricanes.

“Now, is Bogosian a “bust?” It’s too early to say something like that. What we do know is … he won’t command a lot in terms of a trade”

Bogosian is not a bust, yet. The 4th year is tell-tale. If he doesn’t make the jump, like many young D-men before him, into a bona fide, top-4 caliber D-man, then we won’t be much better next year. As for his trade value, I beg to differ. He could probably bring a hefty return because of his age and his “upside”. That’s the million dollar question and I reckon Dudley will give him a big pay cut, tell him to get his act together and come to camp ready to dominate. While I think he could bring a hefty return, including a young, scoring wing that we need, his development from this year to the next may determine this team’s fate in the subsequent season. I just hope that Kulda and Postma are given every opportunity to make the team after Johnny Oduya is traded out of here. No way Dudley stands pat; he will trade one of our D-men and Oduya is the most likely candidate. Sorry Johnny, but it’s true.

OK, this is off the Bogo topic, but will give you some historical insight about playoff positioning, etc. I hope you enjoy the long post.

The entire Pacific Division still may qualify for the NHL playoffs. While it’s still a longshot, it could happen.

• The last time an entire division (five teams) made the playoffs in the same season was in 1980-81 when all Adams Division teams advanced. Of course, only five teams were eliminated from contention after the regular season as the NHL had only 21 teams then.

All four Patrick Division teams advanced in 1977-78 and 1978-79 when the league had a total of 18 teams.

In 1993-94, 1994-95, 1995-96 and 1996-97, five of the six Central Division teams advanced to the Stanley Cup playoffs. Five Atlantic Division teams made the playoffs in 1995-96, and five Northeast Division teams advanced in 1997-98. Since the 1998-99 season when the conferences were split into three divisions, there has never been a season when all five division teams have made the playoffs. The Southeast Division has never had three teams advance to the playoffs during any one season.

• The Sharks captured their fourth consecutive Pacific Division crown after last night’s win over the Kings, and ran their record against division foes to 13-3-5. Their 31 in-division points are seven points better than the Kings, the exact margin by which they lead the division.

• The current six division leaders/winners have a combined record of 79-33-20 against their respective division rivals. The Red Wings, 11-9-2 against its Central Division rivals, had the worst mark of the six division leaders/winners.

• The Penguins posted the best record against Western Conference teams of all Eastern Conference teams taking 25 of 36 points in 18 games. The Lightning and Rangers tied for second with 22 points against Western teams.

• The Red Wings play at Carolina tomorrow night and take the Western Conference’s best record against the East to Raleigh with them. Detroit is 12-3-2 for 26 points against Eastern Conference teams. Interestingly, Central Division rival St. Louis had 25 points against the East, and Columbus, which hosts Buffalo on Saturday, also has 25 points against Eastern teams.

• Since the advent of the losing team getting one point for an OT/SO loss in 1999-2000, a total of 15 teams that had 90 or more regular season points missed the playoffs. Phoenix (90) in 2000-01, Edmonton (92) and Dallas (90) in 2001-02, Toronto (90) Atlanta (90) and Vancouver (92) in 2005-06, Toronto (91), Montreal (90) and Colorado (95) in 2006-07, Carolina (92) and Buffalo (90) in 2007-08, Florida (93) and Buffalo (91) in 2008-09, and St. Louis (90) and Calgary (90) in 2009-10.

Calgary, Dallas and Carolina all could fall victim this season. The Flames and Canes have 11-11 OT/SO records, while Dallas is 10-11.

My $0.02 is on the Sharks this season. I just have a feeling. It’s a well built team and they are peaking right now. They’ve kinda flown under the radar this year, plus they are coming off of some playoff disappointments, so the team is motivated.

Sharks could be tough to handle glovesave 29. They are 11-2-3 since March 1, but Vancouver is 13-3. Niemi has started 34 straight games for the Sharks, so I am sure he’ll get some rest this week.

I am going to pull hard for the Preds again this year, and if Rinne keeps playing well, they could finally advance past the first round.

RL – Preds…sigh – THATS how to build a franchise. Tied into the city, a tough – hard nosed team. They’ve made the playoffs in 6 of the last 7 seasons after missing them the first 5 after expansion. Succeeding in a small market pisses off everyone north of the border, so ya gotta like that. Hard not to root for the underdog. But the Sharks just seem to have it all. Vancouver is tough, but Luongo has a history of wetting the bed when the games really matter, and Niemi has a cup ring…backing up a powerhouse Chicago team, sure…but a cup nonetheless.

Time to start discussing playoff predictions.

West:
I was hoping LA would have a chance of doing some damage, and they still could. They will probably play phoenix or nashville – but – Kopitar is done for the season and that is a HUGE loss for LA.

Chicago is struggling to stay in, it is sad to see a cup winner not make it in the next year. I hope they do. But when you ship away some winners, you gotta expect it.

Vancouver is the real deal. Detroit is always scary San Jose is always good but always loses by the 3rd round.

East:
Anybody see the Rangers vs Philly game Sunday? Wow, that looked like a game 7. Don’t count out the Rangers in the cup finals, Lundquvist is on fire. Crosby shouldn’t play the remaining games till the playoffs start, too dangerous. With Malkin and Crosby back in the playoffs, not to mention they clinched as spot WITHOUT them for well over a month, they can be very dangerous.

I think the lineup in the East is set, placement is not. Carolina won’t catch Buffablow, 3 pts behind, no games in hand and 3 games left.

Boston will stay at #3 I think. Pitt and Tampa could change spots but neither will be below 5th.

I think Philly will keep #1, sorry Caps, they are just more consistent.

Thoughts?

Remember yesterday when I posted the Thrashers had three draft picks that were called up and who played a total of 13 games?

The Preds, on the other hand, had six draftees that played a total of 46 games so far, and chipped in with nine goals and six assists.

What is even more remarkable is that last year, they got contributions from eight rookies drafted by the team that played a total of 229 games — and they still made the playoffs.

I have heard that Kulda has had an off season in Chicago this year which could be him being disappointed by not making the big club. I really believe Oduya is the odd man out this offseason.

The biggest issue with the AHL is the age limit, without the 20 yr age limit there would be more players developing there.

Last thought on Bogo, I think he learned a lot this season, just like Buff. Neither of them had a great season from beginning to end. Sure there were many bright spots but Buff was all but invisible in the second half as far as scoring.

Anyone have any thoughts on the upcoming draft? Any favorites so far? I think another option is to look in Europe for some guys that lead leagues over there in scoring that are available.

Anyone remember Perin (eric) here? Remember how he was so high on himself? Well he is playing in the SM Liiga in Finland in Jyvaskyla, a small town…

You have to respect a guy like that. I heard after the game that he’d probably broken a bone, so I just hope that he’s okay long term.”

Ryan Callahan may be done for the year, which sux for the Rangers. That’s a tough one. But, I do think the Rangers have all but punched their card, with that 3rd period win over Boston.

Glovesave29, I don’t trust Vancouver as a “lock” to win the Cup, either. Can’t rule out San Jose. My pick is the Washington Capitals. The Caps might not make it out of the 1st round. Varlamov and Neuvirth aren’t exactly the best known goaltenders in the league. In the playoffs, it always takes good goaltending to win. When I think elite goalies, I think Luongo, Thomas/Rask, Lundqvist, Miller, Kipprussoff, Pekka Rinne, Vokoun, Brodeur, etc. Niemi is a good goalie. Carey Price is a good goalie, despite my efforts to harpoon him, in the past.
Jonas Hiller can steal a series. Bryzgalov may wow us this year.

This is why we play the games.

Rawhide and particularly several others, I don’t completely disagree with your assessment of Bogosian’s play. It has been awful in some games. Others, however, it has been great. It may be hard to say given some of the games where he looked completely lost or lacked confidence but I believe he has progressed this year. Last year he was the worst D-man on the team (even worse than Valabick which I often stated) mainly because he was trying to do too much, running out of position just to make a hit, and lacked composure under fire. This year he has had some of those games but he has had just as many where he controlled the game from the blue line and showed the true potential he has. In the 3 games against the East leading Flyers in March, he played outstanding and saw team leading big minutes in all 3. One of those games, by the way, was the game prior to Boston.

The thing about his career numbers over the past three seasons is directly related to the minutes and role he has been given. His TOI among D-men has gone from 149th to 82nd to Top 50 this year. His first year he was the 5th D-man playing much of that year with Mathieu Schneider. He also ranked 7th overall and 6th for D-men on even strength time. He was not as exposed as he is now. This has greatly affected his +/-. When he came back from his injury in the second half, the Thrashers as a team got hot. This also coincided with the arrival of Rich Peverly and it wasn’t until then in mid-January that he scored his first goal, accumulated all his points, and went from a -3 to a +11.

Last year he saw a bigger role as the number 4 and actually led the team in ES play. He was out there a lot more against the other teams’ best. This year he has been the number 3 and even number 1 D-man at times. He ranks second on ES play behind only Buff but has actually seen that increase by a minute a game without any increase in PP time. He is playing more and more against the best in the game – as a 20 year old kid. Again, greatly affecting his +/-.

The biggest improvement I have seen him make this year is what he does with the puck under pressure. In the past he would make a bad clear or rim it up the boards only to have it turned over. This year he is far more patient with the puck and will make a better first pass. He is shooting it more from the blue line and, since recently going to the Combat stick, his shots on net have improved. And they are hard. Unfortunately, his shooting percentage has declined from 10% to 6.5% to the current 3.4%. Keep firing it on net and they are going to go in.

Believe it or not, his positioning has improved over last year. Does he still make mistakes or look lost at times? Yep, but not as bad as last year. He also isn’t running around just to hit somebody like he did last year only to have an odd man situation occur the other way. His hits are cut in half this year but he’s still 4th on the team with 104. Also down are his stupid and unnecessary penalties. This year he has only seen minor penalties in 11 games and has seen muliple minors in only 1 of those.

Coaching by both Ramsay and Torchetti has helped in these areas. The kid has not regressed as some believe or even that the -26 suggests. In fact, he has been given a bigger role than ever before – as a 20 year old kid. There is a lot of good that comes from this on-ice experience along with a lot of growing pains. I understand it may not be easy to see or be patient especially after a game like Boston. However, with Enstrom out, don’t be surprised if he is given another chance to redeem himself in Nashville tonight as the Thrashers’ number 1 D-man in the game. After all, it is the site where he first showed his true potential by scoring his first career goal and assist, first cracked 20 minutes, first led the team in TOI, and finished a +4 just a little over two years ago on January 17, 2009.

Patience. Zach Bogosian is a talented 20 year old kid and is only going to get better.

Welcome to the NHL, Mr. Zubarev.

So far he’s played six minutes, 11 seconds. And he is a -3. Ouch.

Bogosian has sucked this year, but it’s too early to give up on him I think. Look on the bright side. At least now we don’t have to spend a ton to re-sign him. That money can go to Kane, Wheeler, Ladd.

Bogo showed flashes of greatness his rookie year… I’d venture a guess that perhaps his “rocky” relationship with Torch might be a primary factor in his play this season??

Will be really sad to see Boults go – if speculations are true. Points wise this has been his best season. He’s a medium sized guy that regularly stood up for his team and took on heavyweights (often beating them senseless). Boults has never taken a night off.

We do not need a snake like Matt Cooke on this team.

Penguins now one (1) point from catching Philly for the Atlantic division championship. Wow, that kinda snuck up on us, huh? Ottawa beat Philly, 5-2.

Buffalo took a major step towards the playoffs with a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay. That gives the Capitals the SE Division crown for the 4th straight year, irrespective of the outcome of the Capitals-Leafs game. But, the Capitals won, in the shootout, I think. Leafs are eliminated. Finally.

Montreal won, 2-1, over Chicago. That’s gotta clinch a spot for Montreal. Dallas is leading Columbus, 1-0, with 4:43 left. Nashville waits for the outcome of that game. A Stars loss means the Predators are in the playoffs, again.

Sisu, I hope I am wrong, too. I want Carolina to be # 8, and give Washington fits in the opening round! If the Caps, ‘Canes, or Bolts win the Cup this year, it sure will upset the pundits in Toronto!

I have to feel bad for Ryan Callahan and the Rangers. They’ve put up a season that looks as if it’ll end with playoffs. But now, it doesn’t look nearly as good for a 1st round upset. Then again, if they draw Philadelphia, that’s a team they know very well. Then again, Philly may fall all the way to 4th spot, and play TB in the opening round. Montreal could fall back to 7th, if Buffalo catches them at 6th.

Interesting note, of all the playoff series possibles, the # 6 vs. # 3 matchup has not changed since February 8th. It’s always been Boston vs. Montreal. If it doesn’t end up that way, I’ll be surprised. I love Boston vs. Montreal as a playoff series. We’ve seen it several dozen times, through the decades. It’s always a good one, even if there’s a sweep. They hate each other so muuuuch. Truthfully, Montreal usually wins, but things have been changing, more recently. There’s reason to believe the Bruins could win the East this year, if they catch some breaks.

In preseason, the Penguins were a good bet to win the East. Without Malkin, and with a Crosby who hasn’t played in months … I’m not sure that the Penguins are even a lock to win in the 1st round. TB has to like their chances against the Penguins, given this set of circumstances. If the Pens win the Atlantic, the Bolts will play the Flyers, Cup Finalists last year. I really think the Bolts are still a year or two away from Cup contention, but this is a year where they could win a round and use it as a springboard to bigger things in 2012.

What about some love for GM George McPhee? His Capitals have won the Southeast Division for a fourth year in-a-row. If the Caps are ever gonna win that Cup, they’ve got make it happen. Division titles are “nice,” but that’s not what signing Ovechkin to a 13-year deal was all about. Ted Leonsis, owner, expects titles. The East is a bit watered down. Conditions for winning the Conference aren’t going to get much better. The principal competition is Boston and Philly, and maybe the Pens, too. I like Bruce Boudreau. I hope it happens for him. He came into the season under a lot of heat … after last year’s upset by 8th seeded Montreal in the Opening Round. I’m not saying the Caps will fire him if they don’t win the Cup, but the pressure is certainly on … to at least make it to the CF. Washington looks to be the # 1 seed for the 2nd year in-a-row.
