No, Steve Belkin Will Not Keep The Atlanta Thrashers From Moving To Winnipeg

Late Monday night, word spread on Twitter that 11 Alive was reporting Steve Belkin, disgraced former Atlanta Spirit Group member, was planning to ride back into town on a gleaming stallion and clog up the Atlanta Thrashers relocation to Winnipeg. Whether WXIA actually reported such a thing, I have no idea, as it hasn't appeared on their website or anywhere else.

I have nothing to link to here.

Will Belkin deploy his injunctiony, red tapey powers and use them for good? No, based on a tweet by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore. That July court hearing involving Belkin is just "a procedural matter" ending the six-year lawsuit between Belkin and the rest of the ASG and apparently has nothing in particular to do with the team's relocation.
