A local group trying to keep the Predators in Nashville is on the verge of signing a letter of intent.
Owner Craig Leipold has been working with a group of local investors to finalize a bid for the team since flying to New York on July 18 for a meeting with NHL officials.
Leipold has been trying to sell his franchise because he said he has lost $70 million since being awarded the team in June 1997.
This might mean that the team is not moving anywhere for now. Is this good news for the NHL?
Preds staying, for now
generally have at least 1 billionaire since the gated community has a number living there.

Wayne you make about as much sense as a 5 year child that thinks he knows everything. I am sure you know a few billionaires and I am Bill Gates nephew LOL.
Mr.Basillie's lawyer was on a Toronto sports tv / radio show and explained everything in regards to moving the team to Hamilton and Toronto probably wont get to veto it much less Buffalo that is outside the 50 mile radius but I am sure you will tell us Bufalo is in the limits. I didnt know you have access to the NHL By-Laws Wayne I guess you are Mr.Basillie's lawyer to LOL. When the Preds move to Hamilton and Toronto tries to block it Mr. Basillie could sue the NHL like Al Davis sued the NFL when he wanted to move the Raiders and the NFL said no, guess what Al Davis won in court and moved his team. Wayne read slowly I said $ 6.4 million to someone like Mr.Basillie is small change not me, just another mistake you made but I am sure you do know a few billionaires even though there are only a handful in Canada and you know them, thats hilarious Wayne LOL.
Go Hamilton Preds!!!!
