    "Formality" of approving Winnipeg ownership/relocation, expanded rule 48.


    And

    Hopefully this doesn't turn into a PR fiasco meaning the BoG doesn't approve it.

    Came here to ask this.

    Eaglepride, I'd put the chances of a non-approval somewhere around 0%. It's a rubber stamp.

    The vote is nothing more than a formality. There's literally nowhere else the team can go at this point. Even Daly was saying it's almost certainly going to be unanimous approval.

    Even though it's only a rubber stamp, I'm guessing Cheveldayoff may have contract extensions worked out with Ladd and the other RFAs, but cannot announce them until TNSE officially owns the team and Cheveldayoff is officially the general manager.

    Similarly, maybe TNSE needed the BOG to approve their name/logo, hence it hasn't been released yet. Supposedly the Thrashers website is shutting down today and there's already a "Winnipeg NHL" team listed on NHL.com. I can't imagine the name announcement being too far away, especially of all mention of the Atlanta Thrashers will soon be gone.

    Still think it would be better to announce it at the draft podium. Imagine the record ratings for that one. ;)

    John Shannon of Sportsnet reports that it was "unanimous" in favour of the Winnipeg sale and relocation...

    Heh, I forgot that it was today.

    And now, we must wait for the team name

    Actually, I think that is something that would be best announced in front of a live Winnipeg audience rather than a Minnesota one.

    Yeah, boarding (rule 41) was updated. Hitter needs to avoid or lessen hit against a defenseless opponent.

    Checking the fine print at the bottom of the new winnipeg.nhl.com page, I noticed that the website was the official home of "6282980 Manitoba LP", which is not mentioned anywhere else that I could find. Any ideas what it may be?

    That's the legal name for TNSE for it's purchase of the Thrashers. It was also used in their trademark of "Winnipeg Whiteout".

    The plot thickens....

    Does anyone know if that legal name was used for anything else?

    Yeah, they trademarked that as the advertising campaign. Atlanta did it in 07 when they trademarked Blueland, and Calgary made the "C of Red" advertising thing official in 04.

    Nothing that I can find besides the purchase and trademark. I don't know how corporate law works in Canada but it's not unusual for a company to operate under a LP for business purposes. The 6282980 Manitoba LP business address is the same as TNSE and the MTS Centre.

    Heaven forbid! It will mean a deluge of expansion/relocation threads about every conceivable city of over 100,000 in North America and several 'Bald Silly Is Evil lulz' threads.

    Our only hope then will be that Matt Hulsizer decides to fax another letter....:scared:

    At lease 11 months in the planning and possibly longer......I am surprised this was kept a secret (the brand at least) for so long......I think it is a classic case of so much information nobody new what to believe. Same as the casino and sports bar in city place it is a 11 month old deal conceptually and the rumors would surface then die......makes you wonder what else will crop up ;)

    The 5 levels of mixed use is more aggressive than I had heard? This will be huge and will cleanup the ugliest block along Portage....This is a top hotelier and uber hip....I have heard Alt which would be a big win......Germaine would be over the top but unlikely

    All good news and next Tuesday we get the official announcement
