Winnipeg: Back in the NHL at Atlanta's Expense

In case you haven't heard, earlier last week it was announced that, as speculated, the Atlanta Thrashers were purchased and will move from Georgia to Winnipeg.  Less prominent in the headlines is that this move has caused the AHL's Manitoba Moose to be relocated to St. Johns, Newfoundland.

There has been no word on the official name for the new Winnipeg franchise, but rumors have passed with names like the Falcons, Polar Bears, and of course the Jets.
