Manitoba Moose Reportedly Moving, Making Way For Atlanta Thrashers Relocation

How are the Atlanta Thrashers going to play in Winnipeg's MTS Centre if there's already a hockey team there, huh? Answer that one for us. Oh, you say the AHL's Manitoba Moose are expected to announce a move to a different arena next Friday, Robin Short of the Telegram? Yes, I suppose that would answer that.

The Mile One Centre in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador would take the team, which would remain the property of True North's Mark Chipman for a season. There goes that great idea of shipping the Thrashers there and the Moose here and hoping nobody notices.

The relocated Moose would become the farm team of the Winnipeg [Jets] team, leaving the Vancouver Canucks system. Still no word on what's expected to happen to Atlanta's Chicago Wolves.
