The Atlanta Thrashers are for sale and it is looking all but certain that they are moving to Winnipeg. Atlanta has never been a hockey city the two times they have had teams. Do not forget the Flames started in Atlanta before they moved to Calgary. Winnipeg would love a team and I know they will support this team just like the old "Jets". Personally, I would love to see a new Winnipeg team become the Jets, even if they have to buy the name back from the Phoenix Coyotes. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts about this.
The old owners did not know how to financially run a team. Also, they played in a very old and outdated arena. The team's was supported by the fans and felt like their hearts were ripped out when the team was sold and moved to Phoenix. Will Winnipeg support this team? Yes. They are just like all Canadian cities crazy about hockey. Atlanta just never supports hockey even though they are one of the biggest cities in the US. There are several other cities that currently have NHL teams that probably should not and Atlanta is one of them.
