After many weeks of speculation and anxiety, it was made official this morning that the Atlanta Thrashers would be moving toWinnipeg,Manitoba. In celebration of this momentous occasion, today I start my blog, Return of the Peg. This blog is dedicated to providing the most thoughtful and critical opinions of the new Winnipeg NHL team.
With the tremendous amount of support inWinnipeg, many people will be starting their blogs about the new Winnipeg NHL team (whatever they may be called). So why read mine? Well the biggest advantage is that I have been an avid follower of the Atlanta Thrashers for eight years. I assure you, as passionate as my fellowWinnipegbloggers may be, as of right now I am the most knowledgeable person when it comes to the former Atlanta Thrashers. I am honest and not afraid to tell it like it is so if this sounds like something you would want to read, you’re in the right place.
In the coming days, I will recap what happened to the Thrashers last season and examine what they need to do in preparation for the draft and free agency. I also might even write a little on the Stanley Cup final if it strikes my fancy. If you happen to come across my blog, please leave a comment as it would be much appreciated. Also if you are the writer of a more prominent blog and would like to say what’s up (or even add me to your blog roll) that would be great as well.
Thanks for reading and welcome (back) toWinnipeg!!
