 ATLANTA (AP) -The Atlanta Thrashers are the only NHL team without a victory, and coach Bob Hartley could be on his way out.
The team scheduled an afternoon news conference Wednesday amid reports Hartley has been fired following an 0-6 start, with general manager Don Waddell to become interim coach.
The Thrashers have been outscored 27-9, and their winless start comes after they won the Southeast Division last season and made the playoffs for the first time. Atlanta then lost four straight games to the New York Rangers in the first round of the playoffs.
Hartley, who won a Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche in 2001, is in his fifth season with Atlanta. It was clear after Tuesday night's 4-0 loss to Philadelphia that he was aware of building pressure.
``You know what? If anyone is not satisfied with the team effort, I don't agree,'' Hartley said. ``I think those boys work hard. ... Let's keep working, let's get a couple of breaks going our way and we're going to turn this thing around.''
``The last thing that those guys need right now is to be hard on them,'' he added. ``It's hard enough right now. When people don't have great confidence you don't step on them. I'm part of this. We have to find solutions, we have lots of young players, we have lots of new faces, and to get in those guys face and to start yelling and throwing stuff, I think that we would go backward.''
