Well, the moment we were all waiting for (in a bad way) has finally arrived. It appears that the Atlanta Spirit, the ownership group that controls the Thrasers, are in serious negotations to sell the team to True North, who would move the franchise to Winnipeg, according to Chris Vivlamore.
I have confirmed that the Atlanta Spirit and True North are in negotiations about sale and relocation of #Thrashers. Story to come soon.
David Pagnotta tweeted a similar report, but made it sound like the negotiations were even further along than Vivlamore had made it seem.
Quick update... Thrashers are inching closer to a sale to head to Winnipeg, as both sides appear to be finalizing a deal.
If this is in fact the case, we could be looking at the last few days, or hours, of the Atlanta Thrashers. Stay tuned, because we'll be covering this story all the way through completion.
