Thrashers Relocation Announcement Unlikely Before Weekend, Says Darren Dreger

We're pretty sure that at this point the Atlanta Thrashers are going to be sold to True North and moved to Winnipeg. But we can't be totally 100 percent sure until an announcement is made by either the Thrashers ownership group (likely) or the group buying the club. According to Darren Dreger, you shouldn't expect the Thrashers to make an announcement about the their relocation Wednesday, and maybe even not by the end of the week.

It's Tuesday. No announcement has been planned and there won't be one today to acknowledge a deal has been reached between Atlanta Spirit Group and True North to relocate the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg. Sources close to the negotiation say it's possible, but unlikely, the two sides will complete the transaction by Thursday or Friday and until its finished, trying to determine a firm timeline is nothing more than a guessing game.

So not only is Atlanta going to lose their hockey team, they have to play this agonizing waiting game while we wait for the deal to officially go through. We'll keep you posted.
