Good Heavens' MAROONS Im not "bitter" over the loss of Atlanta. The NHL had absolutely no choice but to expedite the sale to Winnipeg. Thankfully they had the option & the team enjoyed a better than soft landing; future looks bright. No, Id say "disappointment" is a better word for how I feel about it though thats more than compensated positively with Winnipegs' return to the NHL. I do however stand by my statements that given the right ownership group in Atlanta eventually it could, underline could become a top five in terms of revenues & valuation. Dallas was bled dry by Hicks' & it too under the proper guidance, which it now has, can be a top 10. We'll see how that goes.

Thanks on the first bit. A-OK to disagree. If we all shared the same opinions what a boring place this'd be.
