Thrashers Not Sold To Winnipeg Yet, Says ESPN's Pierre LeBrun

Here's another national hockey media member denying the Globe and Mail's report that the Atlanta Thrashers have already been sold to Winnipeg's True North. ESPN's Pierre LeBrun tweeted Thursday night that his source at TNSE has denied the claim:

FYI source at True North in Winnipeg just told me deal is NOT done yet with Thrashers. Talks continue.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply

Let's go ahead and postpone the goodbye party for now. We had expected the sale to be announced next week, and it's starting to look like that timeline might just be upheld.
