Atlanta Thrashers Sale 'Official,' Says Edmonton AM Radio Station

Official is a funny word. To some, it means the deal has been completed and announced by all parties involved. To others, it means something else. Edmonton radio station 630 CHED AM's Dan Tencer says the deal was officially completed "in Atlanta" Tuesday night, and you're free to decide what to make of official there.

That's two reports of the deal having been finalized Tuesday night, but neither of them from national media, traditional Winnipeg media or any Atlanta media. My one reason to wonder about this one, other than the track record in general of AM radio reports (no offense to this particular outlet, of which I'm not at all aware): it claims True North paid $170 million, which is the exact price every Joe Hockey had figured the price would be.

How could every Joe Hockey have been so right all along?
