The Globe and Mail is reporting that there is an agreement in principal, and an official announcement will be made on Tuesday “confirming the sale and transfer of the Thrashers to True North Sports and Entertainment, which owns and operates the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League and the MTS Centre arena, which would become the NHL team’s new home”.
Other news sources are saying that nothing is final and that even if there is an agreement in principal, there are still formalities to tend to before any move takes place. This, though, seems like one of those situations where the writing is all over the walls.
When this becomes final, one of many questions is what will happen to the Southeast division. The team name and colors are also big questions, and there is certainly a lot of speculation and rumor about that.
