Glendale voted to pony up another 25 million. Wow. It's quite comedic when it comes down to it. It will be curious to see what efforts will now be made to keep the Thrashers in Atlanta.
I'll admit I'm more keen on the Thrashers coming here than the Coyotes given I didn't want the baggage associated with it. At the same time, I'm starting to think more and more that Winnipeg is nothing but a pawn to Bettman and the NHL and we won't see a team. It's absolutely crazy from a business sense on the NHL's part given you have an owner, an arena and a rabid hockey area all waiting to have a team, no government funding involved, but you still don't rate. And I don't care if you're Phoenix, Winnipeg, Toronto or anywhere else, direct government funding with tax dollars to millionaires is just simply idiotic.
