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
When Mr.Roddier I belive is the lawyers name was on prime time he brought Mr.Basillie's copy of the NHL By-Laws and read from it word for word. But you being the know it all sports info boy I guess you know more than Mr.Basillie's lawyer LMFAO.
You are sad and pathic wayne and keep making yourself look like the goof you truly are!!!

About a month or 6 weeks ago Mr.Basillie made over $ 385 million in 1 day!
I have been to Buffalo many times to see Sabre and Bills games.
Who cares what Toronto thinks, they dont own the southern ontario market and never will! They would lose alot of fans when Mr. Basillie gets his team which is only a matter of time.
Go play with your map lil boy and keep using your crayons to draw your circles LMFAO.

Nashville doesn't have a fan problem. they have a corporate sponsorship problem. A big form of revenue. Hamilton doesn't have many large corporations based in it (don't even say Stelco and Dofasco ) Which Buffalo and Hamilton present as another stumbling block.

And the NHL Bylaws are not available to the general public idiot. Only way anyone can get them is to make an offer to buy a team like Jim Basillie did and that's how he and his lawyer found out this infomation you tool. Keep running your mouth like you know what you are talking about because my friends and I have alot of good laughs at you not with you LOL.

If Jim Kelly a Buffalo area resident says Buffalo isnt in the 50 mile radius then they arent you moron. Ohh yea I forgot you know more than a professional sportswriter.
You are the biggest idiot posting comments. Grow up and act your age for a change instead of your shoe size which are probably in the same range anyways LOL.

GET THIS THROUGH YOUR 1 BRAIN CELL YOU HAVE LEFT OK CRAP FOR BRAINS, BUFFALO DOES NOT NOW OR EVER HAVE A VETO VOTE ON HAMILTON GETTING AN NHL TEAM.
WHEN OTTAWA AND TAMPA WERE AWARDED EXPANSION TEAMS IT WAS BECAUSE RON JOYCE WANTED TO PAY THE $ 50 MILLION EXPANSION FEE OVER SEVERAL YEARS INSTEAD OF THE LUMP SUM OTTAWA AND TAMPA PAID.
I KNOW YOU HAVE TROUBLE UNDERSTANSING BIG WORDS SO ASK AN ADULT TO HELP TO READ THIS. IF THEY ARENT ANY GROWN UPS AROUND TO HELP YOU READ THIS USE A DICTIONARY TO GET THE MEANINGS OF THE BIG OR SMALL WORDS YOU DONT KNOW THE MEANINGS OF LOL.

were developed centuries ago to aid traveleres. You can't make a map lifesze so they have to shrink it and use a scale to define what the distance on the map is compared to real life. Here is the important part, A Mile is equal to a mile on every map. 1 inch on a map may equal 50 miles in reality though. That is the scale. To determine the distance between two points on a map, Two sticks were attached together with a hinge and they sharpened the non hinged ends calling it a COMPASS. They placed one pointed end at the beginning of the scale and one at say 10 miles on the scale. This meant the distance between the two points equalled 10 miles (it wasn't really 10 miles, just to scale, you might not get that). They then placed the first point on the start point and walked it until they reached their end point thus telling them the distance. They then took one of the pointy ends off and replaced it with a pen. This allowed them to stick the pin end in the start point and make a circle around it. The circle and everything in it would be equal to or less than the distance they measured. Does this help?
