Darren Dreger: Atlanta Thrashers Sale Won't Be Announced Before Tuesday

TSN's Darren Dreger, who Wednesday said the Atlanta Spirit Group's sale of the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg's True North likely wouldn't get done this week, has definitively moved his timeline into next week. Joining Chris Vivlamore and others, Dreger now says:

There will be no announcement regarding the sale and relocation of the Thrashers before next Tuesday.

Breathe deeply, Thrashers fans, and enjoy a mostly sunny Memorial Day weekend. But not too deeply, as the Atlanta Spirit Group is involved, so who knows what could happen next? Virtually everyone agrees the deal will get done, but for the time being, a NHL franchise still resides in Atlanta.

You take what you can get.
