Because their former president Stan Kasten was on TV and talked about his conversation with Goodenow. He said that he told Goodenow that, on its current path, the Thrashers would go belly up, and Goodenow said he didn't care. That's why they got out, according to Kasten.

I would imagine that a new owner bought them because he knew that a new CBA was on the way...and that the Thrashers were part of the package with the Hawks and the arena. For all we know, the Hawks and arena are the attractive commodities in that package.

In any case, my point was about Goodenow's callous nature and how it's just as unseemly as Bettman's. If you want to get caught up in the minutiae, be my guest.
