Morning Mashup: Is today the day?
Darren Dreger reports early this morning that while final sale and relocation details are being sorted out between True North and the Atlanta Spirit Group, there is hope the announcement of a Thrashers relocation to Winnipeg could come today. Atlanta lawyers still need to sign off on the agreement (as well as the league with an official approval), but we could very well see Canada get a seventh team back on this final day of May, 2011.
Stanley Cup Links:
Greg Wyshynski with the analysis.
The Nucks’ checking line center is still noncommittal about a possible return but he’s feeling the best he has since his horrific eye injury in mid March.
More talk of an announcement possibly coming today.
Bill Daly says no announcement today, but if possible the league would surely move to get this announced so their SC Final showcase can take front and center tomorrow.
To borrow from Mikael Traikos’ piece, while the NHL appears to be returning to Winnipeg with perfect timing economically, “What happens if and when the Canadian dollar dips again? What happens when the current CBA gets restructured and players are earning more? What happens when the Jets or the Moose or whatever they will be called miss the playoffs year after year, as the Thrashers have?”

TSNBobMcKenzie Bob McKenzie I can confirm the earlier RDS report: Hal Gill has agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.25M contract with MTL.

If teams like the Oil get nothing but free passes by MSM, you can be sure the Jets, or whatever they will be called, will get at least a 3 year free pass. Whatever success the Jets might have in that time will for sure be deducted by MSM from the Leafs progress/advancement. BOOK IT!

You can likely queue it up right now that the MSM will be relentlessly harping on attendance numbers in Winnipeg on a consistent and tiring basis. Cause it’s what they do.
