TSN.CA — The Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg situation has narrowed to a point where it’s quite possible there could be an announcement as early as Tuesday.
Lawyers on the Winnipeg side have signed off on the deal and the Atlanta legal team is doing their due diligence today. If they sign off on the deal, the sale will go through, pending league approval.
If there is no announcement Tuesday, the next likely target would be Thursday.
Once an agreement has been reached, True North is expected to launch a season ticket drive.
