You know this for a fact LT?. TN wont budge off that price huh?. I think your gravely mistaken my friend. Whether its Phoenix, Atlanta, Miami, whichever, Winnipegs looking at $200-$225M period. Even IF (which they are not) the Thrashers could be had for $100M, the league would tack on another $100M in relocation fee's, minimum, in order to; A) Receive fair value for a franchise in Winnipeg; B) Maintain overall league wide franchise values. The NHL has every right to charge relo fee's & can kill any deal whereby a franchise is being sold for relo & they decide they dont like the market or the ownership group its being sold to.
