If ticket sales and optimism count, the former Thrashers franchise is going to do a whole lot better in Winnipeg than it ever did in 13 years in Atlanta.
Don Waddell has been through it all with the Atlanta Thrashers since they entered the NHL in 1999.
Michael Gearon Jr. backed away from the microphones and cameras, overcome by the emotion of a day he hoped would never come for the Atlanta Thrashers.
First, the Flames. Now, the Thrashers.
Thrashers president Don Waddell said Monday the team is exploring "all options" for new owners as there are reports that for the first time those options include a group interested in moving the team to Winnipeg.
Thrashers president Don Waddell understands that local NHL fans want to know something definite about the team's future in Atlanta.
Thirty years after losing the Flames, Atlanta's hockey fans are on the clock again.
"We've been through the emotions and the frustrations the last few weeks, but when I look back and being there 13 years, it's been a great run," said Waddell, who served as the team's first GM until the 2009-10 season.
"It's going to be tough," said Thrashers president Don Waddell, who has been with the team since the beginning but won't be joining it in Winnipeg. "Sports in general have been tough in Atlanta. I can't say it's finished forever, but they've had two tries at it now and it's been difficult for all ownership groups to make it work."
