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
Wayne if you remember Mario Lemieux had a press conference saying Mr.Basillie was no longer interested in purchasing the team and thats when he went to Kansas to see what kind of deal he would get there and see the new arena.
I strongly believe that Mr.Basillie will be successful in the purchase and moving the Preds to Hamilton after next season.
Go Hamilton Preds Go!
