Atlanta Spirit and True North in Negotiations, Probably Drinking Bulldog Amber Ale and Laughing
The Atlanta Spirit has begun negotiations with True North Sports and Entertainment on the sale of the Thrashers, which would result in relocation to Winnipeg, according to a person familiar with the NHL’s sale process.
A deal has not been completed and it is also not known how long the two sides have been negotiating. However, the fact that talks are on-going could mean the Thrashers would relocate to Manitoba perhaps as soon as next season.
What to do? Why not watch a film about Winnipeg and sadness?
