Prepare for Battle

More rumors about moving our team to Canada. Get ready to fight off the drooling Canadian geese again.

Via Twitter:


So brush up on your facts about the naming rights to Philips Arena being tied to having an NHL franchise in the building, etc.

Long Island, Phoenix, Miami will lose their teams before we lose ours.

Mortimer Peacock interjects: The source of this curious idea is a Twitter feed called NHL Secrets. The person who writes it claims to be "As close as you can get," which means they're Gary Bettman's pot-smoking nephew in Scarsdale.

But seriously folks. Considering that the Internet is what it is, and Twitter is what it is (as the great Ken Layne recently said, "Twitter is a just a sad computer picture of a bird or a whale."), I think the sane thing to do is garnish this with several grains of salt.

Move Atlanta to Quebec? Then where will they put Quebec?

I saw this and started to laugh inside. I'm almost over being angry when I see shit like this.

I'm sure this idiot knows next to shit...

I would just like to find him 5 years from now when Atlanta still has a NHL team and tea bag him.

Mortimer Peacock said...

I'm past being angry as well. It's just boring at this point.

Recaps- If Quebec gets a say, they'll put it in France, where they have always wished they were.

TheFourthPeriod published a post almost immediately after this one about the premier of Quebec being very confident about the NHL returning after his recent meeting with Bettman.

Even when you put salt on top of shit, it's still shit.

That's what I think of these rumors.

Razor Catch Prey said...

Even Eklund is saying he doesn't think any team will move to Quebec. Says that "a source told" him that that they're getting an expansion team in the next five years.

Because that makes sense in this economy.

Make the playoffs, sell out Philips on a consistent basis and this kind of talk dies. The team's doing it's part so far, now we as fans have to do our part and go to the games. The Thrashers marketing department could be improved, though.

Mortimer Peacock said...

Jay-

Yes indeed to all of the above. Except for one thing: I don't think the Thrashers marketing department can be improved; it has to be completely fired and replaced.

Then FTMM, LLC (F That Maltese Marketing, LLC) needs to be hired to take charge of this situation, STAT. You know it, you know it.

Fuck that maltese!
