Life After the Thrashers: A rundown of Blueland-less Hockey in Georgia pt 1

To be fair, there isn't much to talk about, but the last post was made almost 20 days ago.  If you have any sort of idea, make a fanpost about it or something. SBNation has said if the blog...

Consolation Prize! Our TV Announcer Team's Good!

Center Ice can introduce you to a lot of things, not least of all other teams' TV duos. Some are awesome, some are ok, and some make you want to poke your eardrums out. The Thrashers' dynamic duo gets some praise here. I, for one, will miss DE correcting Matt McConnell whenever he made a verbal slip-up on air. Good times.

Some Winnipeg fans react to their first round pick. The draft was hard to watch... this video, not so much. Happy Friday, guys.

A Quick Thank You To The Thrashers

Today's a sad final nail in the coffin for Thrashers fans, but the team leaves all of us with a surprising amount to be thankful for.

Gary Bettman FINALLY Gives Interview To AJC

Wow, the day before the sale's finalized. I guess we should all feel blessed he bothered to do it at all. I have a ton to write tonight, but I'll probably have a story up on SBNATL on this later, so I'll edit this to include a link (EDIT: here you go.). I just thought that those of you who missed C-Viv's tweet would like to read this and then go punch your computer screens.

Craig Ramsay Will Not Be Retained As Winnipeg Head Coach

Unsurprisingly, C-Viv tweeted this today: "Craig Ramsay will NOT be coach of Winnipeg franchise. Was informed Monday." In other news, the sky is blue.

Congratulations to former Atlanta Thrasher Rich Peverley, who's gone from the South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL to hoisting the Stanley Cup with the Boston Bruins. We still love ya, Rich. Except Timmy. He just likes you.

USA Today reports bid on May 20 made to keep Thrashers in ATL

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/basketball/nba/2011-06-09-insider-atlanta-hawks_n.htm   USA Today reports that on May 20 a group bid $500 million to buy everything and keep the Thrashers in...

Dudley Out As GM

Rick Dudley is no longer the GM of the nascent Winnipeg NHL franchise. Various Twitter reports say his four year extension will be bought out over the next eight years. Winnipeg Sun reporter Ken Wiebe speculates on the possible hiring of Blackhawks asst GM Kevin Cheveldayoff by True North to the now-open position.

What Now?

What comes after the Thrashers leave?

Petition to Be Sent To The BOG

Now that the sale's final, the alcohol's been drunk at various wakes around the city last night, and we've all woken up this morning to the prospect of a hockey-free Atlanta market, the Thrashers' fans have to figure out what to do next. The sale might be final - but it - and the relocation - is final pending board of governors approval. So why not show the BOG that we care? Sure, Winnipeg's having their ticket drive. But our drive for signatures is free - which automatically makes it better. Go to this petition and put your name down. It takes literally 2.5 seconds. Let's see how many we can get to show the BOG that we do love our team.

Press Conference To Announce Sale Of Thrashers

Noon Press Conference Scheduled In Winnipeg To Announce Sale Of Thrashers. Hope you're happy with yourself, Atlanta Spirit and the NHL.

The Saskatoon Blues: The Story

From my other home... just a reminder that when things seem the darkest, weird stuff happens. Hell, the Blues have almost been sold and relocated just short of what feels like 20 times, and they're still there. Stuff like this (and the incompetence of the Canadian media) is why some teeny atom of hope is still floating around out there.

CYA time for a member of Atlanta Spirit.

The literati sent out their minions to do their bidding. The Canadian media cannot tolerate threats from outsiders who might disrupt their comfortable world. The firefight started when the cowardly...

Rocket Science

No, really, it's rocket science: Other than a first season outlier, when the Thrashers win more, attendance goes up. When they lose, it goes down. Gosh. Once the excitement of having a team...

Email the Board of Governors, Save the Thrashers

A great idea over at ThrashFan: why not email members of the Board of Governors and let them know how much we want the team to stay? They've got a list of the members over there, but it's time to crowdsource something better: find the email addresses of the members, post them here, and we'll create a form that will email each member all at once. Let's get started, people!

In 2003-04, Chicago, an "Original 6" team, had the second-worst record in the league and ranked 27th in attendance at 13,253 (2,000 less than the Thrashers). Six years later, when the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, they drew 21,356.

Jeff Schultz (ours, not Washingtons) continues to make sense. Must be that newfangled "logic" that can't seem to catch on.

The Legend of Chris Thorburn Continues to Grow

Complete with a minute and a half of video (also from Saturday's meet and greet at Brandsmart), Thorburn spoke to 11 Alive news. They got a bit more than Fox5, including this gem in regards to Bettman: "You'd like to see the guy at the head of the league present. So it's kind of discouraging," I should be at the whatever's going on at this weekend's meet and greet with Boulton at the Brandsmart in Kennesaw. I'll see if he's ticked off too - my money's on a big yes.

Spirit ends exclusivity on Hawks sale talks

Well, now that the excluisivity agreement's ended, now's the time for some random mystery investor to pop up and buy all three teams, right? This whole thing is fishy. The agreement's in place just long enough to mess up the sale of the Thrashers - since most interested parties wanted all three. TNSE's two seconds away from buying the Thrashers, and this agreement ends. Is Gary Bettman in a damn coma?
