Only Two Potential Thrashers Buyers Remain, Based On Report

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore tweets with promise of a more in-depth writeup that the Atlanta Thrashers have only one remaining group of potential buyers hoping to keep the team in town. That wouldn't include Winnipeg's True North group, since Vivlamore specifies that this group wants to keep the team in Atlanta. He does say this group is not based in town, however.

Not sure which group this takes off the table, since the group that [rumor alert] rumoredly [not a word] includes Anson Carter according to rumors was the only group anybody knew of with any interest in keeping the team local. Can't see how it would include J.B. Smith either, since he reportedly wants the Hawks and Philips Arena as well and -- shall we say -- hasn't been taken seriously by very many people, to put it gently.

We'll circle back for more details once Vivlamore posts on the story.
