True North Says Press Conference On Thrashers Sale Coming Soon, According To Report

Here's the firmest confirmation yet that the Atlanta Thrashers are moving to Winnipeg: Global News is reporting True North says it's getting ready to announce a press conference on the return of the NHL to the city. We've heard the town's mayor say such an event could happen as early as Friday, while others are reporting Monday, but there you have it.

All that's left is the wait -- most locals have to be wishing the negotiating parties would just hurry up and get it over with. If you're a Thrashers fan still holding out hope that the team will remain in town, you're about as never-say-die as a fan can get.
