Winnipeg Sun:  AHL can wait until mid-June for Moose.  Can anyone imagine having to wait until mid-June to get a resolution to the situation in Phoenix or Atlanta.

TSN:  Dreger Report (item #4).  So far there hasn’t been much in the way of enlightening news.

Forbes:  Atlanta Thrashers will likely be sold for 110 million.   Sounds a lot better than 170-210 million the NHL reportedly wants for the Coyotes.

Canadian Press:  Coyotes assistant coach Samuelsson heading to MODO of Swedish Elite League.  Are people abandoning a sinking ship?

Winnipeg Sun:  NHL team in Peg would be good for businessIt would certainly help to bring 15,000 people downtown 3 to 4 times a week during the NHL seasonOf course if I lose my standing reservation at Earls Main on Wednesday, then I’d prefer for a new NHL team to play at the Ice Plex west of the city.

Winnipeg Sun:  Players would come here.  As the longest tenured Jets so appropriately states:

“There are enough that want to win, and those are the ones you should target,” he said. “Players who think it’s not good here shouldn’t play here.”
