If this happens it will be the second time that Atlanta has lost an NHL franchise. Who would think that they'd get a third chance? It's a major city where the game hasn't taken.

And if I'm remembering right--Winnipeg didn't lose the Jets to Phoenix because of lack of fan support. They lost it because of arena issues. Now that they have a new arena--with luxury boxes etal. and with the strengthened Canadian dollar and with a strong fan base they should have no problems for the forseeable future being able to support an NHL team.
