NHL in Winnipeg ... AHL in Toontown?

Rod Pedersen's blog is pretty much the gold standard for Saskatchewan sports blogging, so if it's here (pedersenmedia) it's probably being discussed at a level higher than the coffee shops. Rod says the Atlanta Thrashers are almost certain to be moved to Winnipeg after the end of this season. Winnipeg already has a pro team -- the Manitoba Moose, the farm club for the Vancouver Canucks.

So if the MTS Centre (their website) gets a new tenant -- and about 3,000 extra seats, as Rod says -- the Moose aren't going to stay around. And one place they may end up is Saskatoon. And the Blades may end up in Winnipeg -- run as a doubleheader team the way the Hitmen and Flames coexist in Calgary, the Oil Kings and Oilers do in Edmonton, and the Giants and Canucks do in Vancouver.

Hmmmm ...
