Thrashers Roster Of Players Anxious To See If Winnipeg Move Official

The impending Atlanta Thrashers move to Winnipeg has been hard on Georgia hockey fans and the payoff after a 15-year wait for Manitobans, but what about players on the Thrashers current roster? Native Canadian winger Anthony Stewart, for one, had already cast his ballot in favor of Atlanta before insisting to Paul Bissonnette that the deal isn't done, but what about his teammates?

Goalie Chris Mason, another native Canadian who's already voiced his frustration with Atlanta's attendancesays he and his fellow Thrashers players are "on the edge of their seats" about whether to go ahead and make real estate arrangements or not, while adding he'd like the chance to play in hockey-crazy Manitoba.

Ben Maxwell and Evander Kane are also active on Twitter, but haven't had much to say after the Globe and Mail report broke late Thursday night, when both posted the link and asked whether it was legit.
