Well, I don't think many people are surprised about it really.
My indicator of how Thrashers news is playing in the city is the big boss of my company. He's not a hockey fan, but he reads the paper thoroughly. Whenever something big happens, he comes to my office and asks me questions about it. Just now he came and asked if it meant the season was over, and when Atlanta would get the All-Star game again. He said simply, "that's a shame." I had to agree.
