Thursday For Atlanta Thrashers Sale Announcement? Unlikely, Reports Chris Vivlamore

An announcement before Memorial Day of the Atlanta Thrashers officially shipping off to Winnipeg is unlikely. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore says a deal isn't done as of Wednesday night and a Thursday announcement is probably not going to happen, which would rule out this week.

Since Friday, Saturday and Sunday are also out of the question -- Winnipeg is going to want a string of business days following the announcement for season ticket sales, nobody announces something like this on a Saturday and the Stanley Cup playoffs don't have a day off until Monday -- that makes May 30 a date every Thrashers and Jets fans should circle.

Nobody really circles dates anymore. I'm sorry for the anachronism.
