As for Hockey Night In Canada analyst Glenn Healy's suggestion last week that players were cool to the idea of going to the Thrashers because they may move to Winnipeg, Sopel said the Atlanta players are in the dark about the team's future.

"We're hearing the same things as you (reporters)," he said. "Obviously the fan support isn't there.

"If you don't win and you've only made the playoffs once in 11 years, it's pretty tough. I'm not sure where they're going. I know they're looking for new ownership right now. Atlanta's a big enough city that they could support it, but for whatever reasons, they're not getting it done."

Yeah, he definitely answered his own question there. Kind of a weird quote in that sense. I don't think it tells us anything we didn't already know though, or at least I never thought the players would know more inside information than we already did (of course, there's the "why would Byfuglien sign for so long if he didn't know where the team would be playing?" conspiracy theory but whatever).

Also, important to notice how TSN hasn't mentioned anything on their site about the two potential buyers that want to keep the team here (and I checked both the NHL and NBA sections to make sure).

Canadian smarties are like M&Ms not the powdery ones we have.

I need to stop watching Food Network

I think Sopel was fair. Gives us some insight into what the players know. Hope they make a nice run in the playoffs.

I'd say he was fair, but his quote is silly nonetheless. The first part pretty much answers the second, without going into ownership details, etc. But then again, he wasn't here long enough to really be affected by all the nonsense.
