McDavid Intended to Sell Off Thrashers

New, 9 comments
Just in case you didn't already see this, in Jeff Schultz's interview with David McDavid he explains that he had on the table an offer to sell off the Thrashers to another person after obtaining the teams from AOL/Time-Warner.

To consider an offer from an undisclosed party who wanted to buy the Thrashers for "what we were paying for everything" and keep the team in Atlanta. "I don’t know if we would’ve done it but it would’ve immediately wiped out all of our debt."

The identity of that person is unclear, but what is clear is that owning a NHL team was not a high priority for McDavid.
