It's official... NHL returns to Winnipeg!

I don't think anyone thought it wasn't going to happen over the last 2 weeks.

True North buys Thrashers, set to move team to Winnipeg

Watch the NHL Board of Governors say now on the 21st of June ........ with a rationale that with a population of 762,600, Winnipeg will be the smallest market among the 30 NHL cities. So, they will propose moving the club to New Orleans.

Better watch out--or the Buffalo Sabres will be nixed on account of a population less than half of that!

Buffalo has over a million people, so they are safe. Now, when the Thrashers move to NO ............ where there shall be no support, it will then try to move to Hamilton ........... which will be nixed by Toronto .......... and then a group will try to get them to move to Quebec City, with the NDP support ............ which will be nixed by the Conservatives ............. so the team will go back to Atlanta.

Buffalo proper is closing in on 250,000--from the other side!

I hope the next time the league expands they give a third franchise to Atlanta. That will be the best chance for Quebec or Hamilton to eventually get a team.

Lol!

There's still lots of US teams in trouble... QC or Hamilton could yet see a team.

Before the press conference had even started Damien Cox had tweeted "Make it eight!"
