Totally agree. I was pretty mad at the NHL's double-standard with bending over backwards to save the Coyotes, but basically threw the Thrashers under the bus. Totally kills Georgia's growing hockey base and defeats the purpose of "growing the game" in other markets. I mean, which teams in that area do those Thrashers fans root for now? Kinda dissapointed. I know it was to get the 60 million, but still...
