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
Note to Jim...no matter where you decide to locate your Pred team in the Golden Horseshoe,don't name them after the city,but rather after the province.Something like the "Ontario"----- (Mounties/Blizzard...fill in the blank).
It would be prudent marketing and easier to get converts from non-native city dweller)...even the big smoke and Barrie boys like me.
Argo fans could never cheer for Hamilton..lol...Go Jim!
