Options Remain To Keep Thrashers In Atlanta According to AJC's Jeff Schultz

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Jeff Schultz, who has been very much on top of the saga of the Atlanta Thrashers’ impending Winnipeg doom, has some small comfort for Thrashers fans: they haven’t moved to the Peg yet. There are still some options in which the team can stay around – and Schultz does mention that Gary Bettman dislikes the Atlanta Spirit ownership group.

Here’s an idea: everyone write to Bettman and remind him that it’s the owners, not the fans (like the Spirit Group tried to cowardly say) who are to blame here. It shouldn't be too hard to convince a sporting league commissioner of the ASG's incompetence. He can just ask David Stern, if he doesn't believe us.
