Atlanta Spirit and True North in Negotiations, Probably Drinking Bulldog Amber Ale and Laughing


Vivlamore/AJC:

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?

This is just utterly horrible. I've officially stopped payments on my season tix until I hear for sure one way or the other. Too bad I never got to say goodbye to the Bulb as I will never step foot in there while ASG has any ownership in an entity in this city. screw them all. Just pitiful. This city will NEVER see NHL hockey again and that is very sad for this city. Bad enough that the rest of country thinks this is a bad pro sports town. This will be Exhibit A for a long time coming.
