Bob Hartley fired by Atlanta

New York Islander Fan Central | 10/17/2007 12:20:00 PM | | | | | | Bob McKenzie reports Bob Hartley has been fired by the Atlanta Thrashers and gm Don Wadell will coach the club on an interim basis after an 0-6 start.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Seems to me the wrong man got fired and Wadell should have been the one axed.

Hartley took Atlanta to their only playoff appearance in club history and got too quick a hook here considering Marian Hossa is also injured. Wadell has to answer for a lot of mediocre years, a lot of shortsighted trades and my guess is a new gm will be brought in to replace him sooner if the club continues to struggle.
