Or is Dallas somehow not as good as an NHL market as Atlanta? Not successful enough or what?
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.
