Atlanta Thrashers Player Bryan Little On Winnipeg Move: 'We'd Have The Whole City'

Atlanta Thrashers players are all over the map regarding their feelings on the team's likely relocation to Winnipeg, making them much like the team itself, am I right? On the Atlanta-Winnipeg spectrum, we'll go ahead and put forward Bryan Little on the side opposite Anthony Stewart, who recently issued an unchecked box to all non-Atlanta cities.

Little told Southern Ontario's The Record, "Hockey isn't exactly a top-five sport in Atlanta and they have trouble selling tickets down there, so in that way, I think it might be for the best." College football, pro football, baseball, NASCAR, pro basketball and maybe even college basketball ... yep, he's entirely correct about the top-five part, and goodness help us if pro wrestling happens to count as a sport. 

He's not exactly trashing Atlanta hockey fans, though, saying he feels bad for the diehards who will likely lose their team.
