ATLANTA (AP) -One of the Thrashers' owners says the team has "several inquiries" from possible investors but adds the talks do not include moving the team from Atlanta.

Washington businessman Bruce Levenson said Monday "there is no truth to the rumor" the ownership group has been involved in talks about moving the team, including with a Vancouver group reportedly interested in relocating the team to Hamilton.

The Hamilton Spectator reported on Saturday Vancouver developer Tom Gaglardi heads a group interested in moving the Thrashers to Hamilton. There also are efforts to move the Phoenix Coyotes to Hamilton.
