Closest road trip for me, it's too bad they were given such a god-awful ownership group to begin with.

If this is indeed true, the the NHL should at least report this as "official " now, so that the planned support rallies to be held tomorrow in Atlanta can be cancelled, to avoid inconvenience and embarassment. I know that there have been denials on the part of Bettman and others, but it seems inevitable..

I do know what the Thrasher move would mean: Atlanta will never, ever have an NHL hockey team again.

This situation keeps changing.
Now
Peewee-Herman's evil twin, Gary Betttman has announced that there is no deal to move the team to Winter-peg.
I am sure that if that worthless criminal sack of crap Betttman has anything to do with it, he will prevent Winnipeg from ever getting a team, and keep Phoenix losing money rather than moving them to the hockey-rabid Toronto area.
Impeach/impale Betttman !

After all the time everyone spent kicking dirt in Nashville's face Atlanta got the hook instead? I thought they were in good shape according to you guys, and even though they announced it on tv after a playoff game now it isn't happening? I don't see how you guys can stay NHL fans. They may as well have Terrence and Phillip running things as poorly as the NHL office seems to handle this sort of stuff.
