Power Rankings
Too little, too late for the Thrashers, who have picked up points in seven of their past 10 games; Bryan Little has been on a roll.
Getting blown out in Buffalo all but spells the end of Atlanta's playoff hopes in the East.
Big third-period comeback against the Flyers keeps the Thrashers' fading playoff hopes alive.
Second-half slowdown for Dustin Byfuglien. The big D-man has just one multi-point game in 2011.
Some potential local owners offer hope for the future. Only four wins in the last 20 games offers little for the present.
Future of the franchise in Atlanta becomes less clear with each passing week.
Fighting Carolina for that last playoff spot isn't easy when you lose all the games you play against them.
Remember the time when the Thrashers looked like a pretty good bet for the playoffs? Neither do they.
Losing defenseman Tobias Enstrom won't help a team that allows more goals than it scores.
One reason for the slump is the lack of help for the goalie. Atlanta isn't scoring much and giving up more shots per game than anyone.
Preseason Power Rankings
The defense should show a lot of improvement under Craig Ramsey, but Atlanta needs a lot of things to come together to challenge for a playoff spot.
