Agreed, he definitely was in need of a change of scenery. Playing for a winner will help him out tremendously, as well. And yet, at the same time, I believe the Thrashers also improved. De Vries is one more reliable defenseman than they're accustomed to having and I don't believe the drop off in talent from Heatly to Hossa is that big. To me, it appears to be a win-win. I'll be interested to see how Atlanta performs this year.
