The team's new owners, True North Sports and Entertainment are moving the team to Winnipeg and TSN reports that Ramsay got a call Sunday to tell him that True North will be interviewing other candidates for the job, but will also give Ramsay a chance to keep the position as well.
The 60-year-old Ramsay played in the NHL for the Buffalo Sabres from 1971-1985. He's had three different short stints as head coach. In 1986-87, he took the helm of the Sabres for 21 painful games. The team went 4-15-2. In 2000-01, Ramsay was the head coach for 28 games, amassing a more respectable 12-12-4 record. And then this past year, he led the Thrashers to a 34-36 record with 12 overtime losses.
