Atlanta Thrashers Captain Andrew Ladd Joins In Chorus Calling Out Owners

While on a trip to visit Winnipeg, pending restricted free agent and captain Andrew Ladd was asked questions by the Winnipeg press regarding the hockey situation in Atlanta. A chorus of former players have come out in saying that ownership didn't support the team. Well, now Andrew Ladd joins assistant captain Dustin Byfuglien in agreeing that yes - ownership was the problem. Said Ladd:

"How you're treated with ownership goes a long way and we didn't have a great experience with that in Atlanta," he said.

But remember! This whole situation is because Atlanta doesn't deserve hockey, not because a negligent ownership group spending at barely above the salary floor for several seasons led to the declining ticket sales. Nope. This has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that the team's former owners have no grasp of the rules of the game, nor could they name a player other than Dustin Byfuglien in radio interviews.

None.
