Well it’s official hockey fans Winnipeg is playing in the big leagues again!! At 11 am this morning the Atlanta Thrashers hockey club became property of True North Sports and Entertainment! Pending approval by the NHL board of governors.
The goal now, pardon the pun, is to raise a season ticket base in the neighbourhood of 13,000 strong. The group headed by Mark Chipman and David Thompson think this is an attainable mark, and one that the NHL will consider acceptable for fiscal suitability.
