Kukla's Korner is reporting that the Thrashers have signed Fred Brathwaite, Jason Krog, and Darren Haydar. Brathwaite (I've always been a fan) is, I presume, insurance in case Goalie Holocaust '05 repeats itself. I'd imagine Krog, who's had middling success with Anaheim in the past, will be a spare forward, perhaps where I had MacKenzie in the previous post. I really hope he makes the big club; there's a rather nice little wine bar in town called the Krog Bar, and the endorsement possibilities would seem to be limitless. I'd never previously heard of Haydar -- he seems to have done quite well for Milwaukee of the AHL in pervious years, and now presumably will be counted on to do the same for Chicago.
