An agreement to sell the National Hockey League’s Atlanta Thrashers to a Winnipeg group which plans to relocate the franchise to the Manitoba capital is done.

Sources confirmed tonight that preparations are being made for an announcement Tuesday, confirming the sale and transfer of the Thrashers to True North Sports and Entertainment, which owns and operates the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League and the MTS Centre arena, which would become the NHL team’s new home.
Many callers, including reputable sources, are calling Sports Radio out of 1290 are saying it's all but done and we're waiting for an official announcement.

There's even a story on NHL.com about a report that the Thrashers are relocating.

Geographically speaking, Winnipeg to the NW, Nashville to the SE, and Minnesota to the Central makes sense.


If my speculation holds true, welcome to the division.
