Atlanta Thrashers moving to Winnipeg?

OK folks, there was a post on the globeandmail.com website stating that Steve Brunt was positive that the Thrashers were being dealt to Winnipeg. If you truly know anything about the Thrashers, you'll know they were always plagued by shitty owners who couldn't care less for the team.

Me being a hardcore Thrashers fan, this felt like an uppercut to the gut. Thrashers hockey was hockey that got me into the sport. It was something I never missed voluntarily.

Of course, there are conflicting reports, with Gary Bettman (NHL's owner) saying that no deal has been made. At this point though, the writing seems to be on the wall. And if this is truly the case, I don't know if I can truly get behind the NHL anymore.

I'd like to extend a big FUCK YOU Atlanta Spirit Group for destroying the Thrashers. Thanks for taking away a team I grew up with. Winnipeg fans, congrats on finally getting a team back. I can finally understand how you all felt when you lost your team.

TLDR: Thrashers look certain to move to Winnipeg and I felt like my heart got ripped out.

As much as I love American sports, I cannot believe teams can be uprouted and leave. You'd have deaths if you had this in like Argentina with their soccer teams!

This breaks my heart. I remember when the Jets left Winnipeg. I don't know what I would do if my Bruins left town. Hang in there man.
