Don Waddell: Thrashers Sale Not Yet Complete, Despite Reports

The Hockey News' Ken Campbell and a couple other outlets are reporting the deal that would send the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg is complete and just waiting to be announced. WSB-TV's Zach Klein, however, contacted Thrashers president Don Waddell to ask whether the news was true:

Believe who you want to believe at this point -- Waddell or Ken Campbell or even Gary Bettman, who's sort of pretending nothing at all is happening. I'm going to sit and stare at a wall for five hours, which would make me feel smarter than this story is at this point. Stay tuned though!
