The Jets rumors are flying.
The Globe and Mail is reporting that the Atlanta Thrashers have been sold to True North Sports and Entertainment, the group that plans to bring an NHL team back to Winnipeg. The newspaper says an announcement will be made Tuesday, with Commissioner Gary Bettman present.
Here's where it gets interesting, according to the Free Press. One member of the True North ownership group, David Thomson, owns the Globe and Mail. It's possible (probable?) that he leaked the sale to his own paper, and now the rest of True North is trying to do damage control.
The guess here based on the info is that the deal is done.
