Now we know why the Thrashers went so quickly

While the Thrashers had many years of troubles, as a former Atlantan, I was a bit surprised they were sold so quickly (out of a major US media market!) and that they were the ones that went to Winnipeg (rather than Phoenix, etc). With the linked news above, we now know that Phoenix, Dallas, and New Jersey (!) were all in trouble. This is besides the NYI arena debacle. I've thought for a long time that NYI would move...maybe Bettman is asking Wang to wait for the NJD situation to settle! New Jersey Islanders, anyone??????
