Thrashers sign Reasoner
The Thrashers have agreed to terms with former Edmonton Oiler center Marty Reasoner. Reasoner isn't a top-flight scorer (his career high is 34 points) but he's a solid complimentary player and a strong penalty-killer. He led Edmonton forwards in short-handed time-on-ice (TOI) and that says something considering Edmonton had the fifth best PK in the NHL last year.Atlanta was brutal shorthanded last season and that's where Reasoner's going to play a big role.
He was 13th in the NHL among forwards in total ice time on the penalty kill in 2007-08 and has been a solid defensive player for a few years now.
