Atlanta Thrashers, NHL's Second-Worst Franchise?

SB Nation's Calgary Flames (sounds familiar!) community, Matchsticks And Gasoline, has put together a simple metric based on postseason success over the past decade, then used it to rank all 30 NHL franchises. You'll be floored to learn the Atlanta Thrashers tied with the Columbus Blue Jackets for the second-lowest score according to this system, beating only the Florida Panthers.


Since the Thrashers have only been around for just over a decade, we allege again that a great NHL hockey town cannot develop if it's been given nothing but lackluster NHL hockey.
