EA Sports' NHL 12 Will Include Winnipeg Jets* Instead Of Atlanta Thrashers

The third or fourth thing** every god-fearing hockey fan got around to pondering after it was announced the Atlanta Thrashers would be moving to Winnipeg: will the new team be included in NHL 12? EA Sports has confirmed that, yes, the new team's uniforms and logo will replace the Thrashers'. I'd imagine it's far too late to recreate a convincing version of the MTS Centre, though.

* Yes, OK, they might not call them the Jets. Plenty of people might do any number of dumb things.

** After wondering HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN, etc. etc., and then wondering about 880 different divisional alignment scenarios. Counting all that as one thing. Hockey fans are alignment-obsessed people, though, so it's a very time-consuming thing.
