Atlanta Thrashers Goalie Chris Mason On Winnipeg Move: 'I Would Be Excited'

Had enough of Atlanta Thrashers goalie Chris Mason. After telling Winnipeg's Illegal Curve show how "tough" it was to play in front of dwindling Atlanta crowds -- he said that while selling Manitoba on the team's roster, to boot -- Mason came back to tell the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the Thrashers would've had more fans if they'd had more success. 

Then Thursday night to the Winnipeg Sun, Mason said, among other things:

I grew up watching the Jets and I've always envisioned what it would be like to play on a Canadian team. I enjoyed my time in Atlanta, but if that's the way it goes, I would be excited to play in Winnipeg.

Let's think ahead. Sort of expect Mason to next inform Atlanta media that he's going to run a rap label from the kitchen of his East Point BBQ restaurant before showing Winnipeg TV his new Go Jets Go tattoo.
