In briefly looking at what games are on TV for the 2010-11 season, I looked at the Coyotes, Panthers, Bluejackets, Predators and Thrashers schedules. A lot of games for those 1st 4 teams are on TV, mostly on Fox. For the Thrashers, however, I think I could watch them more often here in Winnipeg than residents of Atlanta could. There were maybe a dozen games on TV. The station broadcasting among the most Thrashers games was RDS, when they play the Canadiens & Senators. This reinforces to me that the Thrashers are ripe for relocation.

I looked at the schedule and my guess is the Thrasher network games are not on the list yet. The Thrashers are on SportsSouth which is a division Fox Sportsnet. (FSN) Not unless SS is not going to televise games but I have a hard time believing that.
Also, to say NASCAR is king in Atlanta is not true. ATL is a city of 5.2M people, most of who are not from Altanta. I doubt NASCAR is even 4th or 5th favorite sport/team. A very large part of ATL is very metropolitan and not sure they follow NASCAR. I would say football is king in GA and not even the Falcons. Most people pull for the college they went to or the pro team near where they grew up.
