Thrashers' Winnipeg Sale Reports, Summed Up By Darren Dreger, Bruce Arthur, Elliotte Friedman

Looking to get caught up on the reports and rumors surrounding the Atlanta Thrashers potential relocation to Winnipeg if a local buyer can't step up to the Atlanta Spirit Group's satisfaction? Here are four quick ways to ensure you're right there with the rest of us. If you only have one minute, take a look at this video of TSN's Darren Dreger breaking out all of Monday's news:

For a little bit deeper perspective on the whole story, I'd recommend CBC Sports' Elliotte Friedman's clear and fair walkthrough of the story's major points -- which was also the first report of Gary Bettman personally blessing the ASG's negotiations with True North.

What does the story mean in the context of Winnipeg's long hockey drought? The National Post's Bruce Arthur, suddenly one of my favorite sports writers, takes to the matter and delivers another excellent piece of prose.

And finally, for all the latest news, stick with us right here at SB Nation Atlanta, then head to Bird Watchers Anonymous to talk about it.
