Atlanta Thrashers Sale To Winnipeg Won't Be Announced Tuesday, Says Bill Daly

That Tuesday press conference the Globe and Mail reported would introduce the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg? Won't happen, says NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly. The Globe and Mail stepped back its projection of a relocation press conference the night after reporting the Thrashers would move, suggesting the announcement could be delayed.

For one thing, Monday is a bank holiday in Canada, and lots of bank is changing hands between True North, the Atlanta Spirit Group and the NHL itself, which would like to receive as much of that final sale price as it can, thank you very much.

There's also a Kid Rock concert at the MTS Centre Tuesday night, which will never stop being funny.

It could be another week before the sale is announced, says the Toronto Sun, as the NHL may want to avoid overshadowing the Stanley Cup Playoffs' current round by finalizing the story.
