    9, but i like roman numerals.

    things could change, but to me it looks like the tuesday announcment schedule seems a bit early. I'd bet on thursday/friday.

    That depends; is this a fork of the Phoenix proceedings or the Winnipeg proceedings or the Atlanta, or none of the above?

    I know one theory is they are holding off on an announcement until after the Cup Finals are over. But honestly, I think if they just announce it next week, Winnipeg will go crazy again, Atlanta will mourn the loss, and people we just move on.
    Wait through the Cup Finals, people will continue to speculate and spread rumors on the internets.

    Id say that this is a Winnipeg/TNSE thread. Where is should only be about TNSE the potential deal betwee ASG and TNSE and Winnipeg NHL team discussions.

    If people want to talk about Atlanta/fans/other irrelevant stuff they can start another thread

    In some ways, both... I suppose you could just add them together and we'd be on something like part 50. :help:

    As has been said before, it is done, depending on what your definition of "done" is. For TSN, it's when Bettman steps to the microphone and announces it.

    I agree with TSN. Once Bettman or Daly announces it, then it will be done.

    Well, that's fine, but let's remember TSN is a mouthpiece for the league on this. They're the ONLY people reporting that the league things local investors will show up from out of the clouds. Mainly because they don't want to spook their contacts. Bettman is literally thumbing through his rolodex as we speak.

    it is pretty funny that after all of the drama, 2 years of rumours....its the coyotes, then its the thrashers, then its the coyotes and in the end TNSE will actually end up purchasing both teams....100% of the thrashers and 3.3% of the coyotes.

    and as co-owners of the Coyotes, they're going to have this stuff taken down :sarcasm:

    Wait - sorry, I must have missed something - how are they ending up with a piece of the Coyotes, too?

    As 1/29th owner of the NHL; they'd effectively own 1/29th of the Coyotes (until a buyer is actually found).

    FYI the writer of the piece is a Winnipeg COLUMNIST, not journalist, so take it FWIW.

    As an aside, something I found humorous (being a nerd), the pictures that illustrate the story were credited to REUTERS :laugh:

    That brings up a very interesting question... with the NHL's return to Winnipeg, do we get our retired players back?

    No. The Jets history is the Coyotes until the team and the league decide otherwise... Hawerchuk is Phoenix's all time top scorer while Winnipeg's will be Kovalchuk

    Couldn't they do what the NFL did and just transfer the history/stats to the "new" team in Winnipeg?
