Atlanta's new handle

According to Sports Illustrated, the Anaheim Ducks won't be the only team with a new name this season: The Atlanta Thrashers have also opted for a minor change.

Thanks to Patty for the link.

UPDATE For those who missed it, the link had been calling them the Atlanta Trashers before some savvy copyeditor caught it.

I wonder if they'll filter illegal money to avoid the woes of a salary cap like the former UHL team.

The guy who wrote that headline was clearly a Leafs fan.

On the opposite side of the coin, I can't even count the number of times I saw the Danbury Trashers referred to as "Thrashers".

The headline seems to have been corrected, by the way.
