Thrashers Coach Craig Ramsay Waiting To Learn Whether Winnipeg Has A Job For Him

What happens to a franchise's staff upon relocation? Besides players, who are almost all under contract, it depends on what the new bosses want. President Don Waddell, for one, won't make the trip to Winnipeg with the relocated Atlanta Thrashers, but other personnel might.

Head coach Craig Ramsay is still waiting to find out whether he's still employed, as the Winnipeg Sun's Ken Wiebe reports. Wiebe also noted True North leadership met with the team's current staff, apparently including general manager Rick Dudley, but not Ramsay.

Dudley's future isn't set either, as he shared with the Star Tribune's Michael Russo. It might actually be a blessing that he has NHL Draft scouting to busy himself with, but it's got to be tough to concentrate during so much change.
