Atlanta Thrashers: 10 Possible Cities for Relocation

In this piece, I will look into 10 cities that could benefit from the relocation of the Atlanta Thrashers.

Currently, the Thrashers are financially struggling and the owners are looking to sell to local buyers to keep the team in Atlanta. As of now though, there are no potential suitors and no deal has been presented.

A while back, did a piece called "Why Not Canada?", in which they looked at Winnipeg, Hamilton, Quebec City and Toronto as possible destinations for a moving NHL franchise.

While those cities will be used in this article, I have tried to go outside the box with other destinations, some a little more exotic and interesting.

I have not done extensive research to prove why these destinations would be economically and logistically feasible (as that would take months and months of research to do properly), but merely am suggesting locations which for other reasons (location, fanbase, size, etc.) could possibly support an NHL franchise successfully.

This is intended to be in a more light-hearted, what-if scenario, and I urge anyone to comment on what cities you would like to see with an NHL team as well.
