Local Ownership Group Reportedly Makes Last Minute Offer To Keep Thrashers In Atlanta

This might be one that we have to file under "too little too late." But according to a tweet from Kevin Allen, an alternative ownership group has reportedly made a last minute offer to keep the Thrashers in Atlanta.

For what it's worth, a group interested in keeping the Thrashers in ATL has submitted a term sheet to Thrashers owners spelling out an offer

At this point, unless that is a billion dollar offer, I can't imagine that the Thrashers will be staying in Atlanta. They seem to already have one foot on the bus to Winnipeg, but it is nice to see that there is a group out there willing to make an overture to keep them in Atlanta. I just don't think that they are coming into the race way too far in, and they might not be offering enough money to grab the attention of the Atlanta Spirit.
