An announcement is expected from the NHL as early as today that the Atlanta Thrasers are moving to Winnipeg. If that happens there is some speculation that it could have a major impact on the Red Wings.
If the announcement pans out there is speculation that it could have a major impact on the Red Wings. Some say there’s a good chance that the NHL would shift the Red Wings from the Western Divison to the Eastern Division. I think that would be extremely good news! The Wings would get to play the Toronto Maple Leafs a lot more along with other origional six teams like the Rangers, Bruins and Habs.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens but one thing’s for sure. Atlanta should never be allowed to have another team. This would be the second time that they’ve had an NHL team and let it slip away.
