    Default THE MOTHER OF ALL RUMOURS!-

    Are Atlanta and Phoenix moving?

    Peter Tessier
    Vancouver Canucks Blogger • RSS • Archive • CONTACT



    This started with a post by Scott Taylor of Winnipeg radio station 92 CITI FM and also of the National Post. In his post on the station's website he claims that David Thompson, son of Ken Thompson and controlling shareholder in Thompson Reuters has purchased the Atlanta Thrashers and is moving it to Winnipeg for the 2010-11 Season. This is to be announced after the Olympics.

    Okay now that you are all agog, the shock is settling in and the countless theories of why this will or will not work are being formulated... that's just the beginning.

    The Manitoba Moose, farm team for Vancouver will be moving to Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Blades WHL team will moving to Winnipeg.

    So it gets better...

    The Phoenix Coyotes will be moving to Kansas City. The NHL has apparently brokered a deal for the Coyotes to move to Kansas City. This is the crazy one. How did this happen with the iron clad lease and the wonderful relationship with the City of Glendale?

    I may be some one who loves to drink but I'm not even close to a bottle right now so don't tell me to put it down.

    I think it's all crazy. I know Mark Chipman, owner of the Moose, has been working hand in hand with the NHL to build a situation where the league feels everything is in place to support a team in the 'new NHL' but this fast?

    I'm putting this out there as the story is gaining some strength and it might as well get discussed, laughed at or be investigated further.

    Have fun with this one!

    Please move ANY team to Winnipeg.

    Moving ATL to Winterpeg makes some sense. I'm not sure about hockey in Kansas City. Just because they have an arena, doesn't mean it will work. Anyone remember the member the KC Scouts? I'd put a team in Quebec, Seattle, Indy or Cleveland, before I'd put a team in KC. I'm just not sure the good folks in Missouri will support 2 teams. I guess they need to Show Me!!!

    BTW: If ATL moves to Winterpeg.... expect the Red Wings to move to the Eastern Conference, probably the Penguins Division!!!

    Who moves to the Southeast then? There are really no candidates.

    Dallas would make more sense than Detroit.

    I would think they would move columbus to the east before Detroit, simply because detroit has such a long history of rivalries with the division and conference they are in...while Columbus is fairly new, and doesn't have the historical ties to the conference...plus, geographically, it is slightly closer to Pittsburgh.

    Also, moving Detroit to the East would upset the balance of power between the two conferences.
    The only player in the NHL more overpaid than MAF is Jordan Staal

    For Christ Sake......!!!!!!! Atlanta already moved ONCE....now AGAIN?????? When the **** are they gonna quit puttin a team down in that town?????????








    By the way......I miss the Winnepeg Jets!!!! They need to come back!!!!! Randy Carlyle should own the damm team too!!!!!!!!!
    Quebec......ehhhhhh....to stuffy for my taste, they belong in Colorado!!!!!!! Plus, I think Dallas should give the Stars NAME (North Stars preferrably) back to Minnesota who has the WORST ****in name in the league....."Wild"....OOOHHHHH scary ****!!!! Also, Phoenix if they go back to Winnepeg should become the Jets as mentioned previously......Atlanta if they go to Winnepeg should be named the Jets........ANY team that goes to KC should NOT be called the Scouts......that was a ****in LAME name..........One last thing......I wish to Jesus that someone would move back to Oakland and become the Golden Seals again.... I still have some Golden Seals **** layin around I miss that obscure "cult" kinda franchise Juju........

    The reason I say Detroit is because they're an Original 6 team that use to have strong rivalries with Toronto, Montreal, the Rags and the Bruins. They've been *****ing since day one about not playing those teams. Detroit's proximity to Ontario puts tens of thousands of Leafs(and Habs) fans within a 20 mile radius of the Joe Louis arena.

    Columbus and Detroit are the only two Western Conference teams in the Eastern time zone. Detroit will ***** the loudest to move and I believe the squeeky wheel will get the oil.

    ...But I agree that the balance of power will be upset.

    Detroit has been *****ing to move for years now. I read somewhere that Detroit is said to be the next or5 first team to switch conferences....

    But it won't be in ours. They'll get thrown into the North East due to the close proximity to Toronto for that rivalry.

    Im all for either switch. I wanna see Winnipeg get a team again and I think the KC market is far better for hockey than Phoenix

    Nice one

    I'd love to see Columbus move to the East....especially our division simply because I love going to games in Columbus. It would be awesome to to there 2 or 3 times a year instead of once maybe.

    The problem still comes with who do you move the Southeast?

    Nashville makes more sense in a Conference switch.

    Also don't think Florida is not on the move sometime soon as well.
