Twisting my words?. A "successful" franchise in Atlanta would easily be worth what the Rangers are worth on Forbes List. In fact, more so, as Atlanta comes with considerably heavier weight classes in the corporate & media sectors. "No takers" in Atlanta was a set-up. A con-job. Do we need to re-visit?. If not for ASG's intransigence you'd be wondering about Shane Doan's retirement instead of Dustin Byfuglien's next move, who apparently wants out of town. I didnt say a healthy team in Atlanta was worth the Habs et al combined. I said & say a team in Atlanta is critical to the league & if run properly would be a a top 5 revenue generator, something Winnipeg will never be.
