I don't expect many Rangers fans to understand, but as someone who lived in Atlanta for 4 years, this breaks my heart. I couldn't get Center Ice in college, so one of the few times I was able to catch the Rangers was when they played the Thrashers. Atlanta is a city that has a lot of Northern transplants, so although the city isn't overflowing with Thrashers fans, there are loads of hockey fans there. It's an unfortunate loss for Atlantans.
I hope people don't blame Thrashers fans for this. The ownership group of ASG was horrible and makes Dolan look amazing in comparison. ASG only cared about the Hawks and the Thrashers were the red-headed stepchild. They owned the team as if they could a flying **** whether or not hockey succeeded down there.
