new preds buyer?

The Nashville Post continues to scoop all other media outlets in Nashville for Predators news.

They are now reporting that a group of local businessmen is putting together a bid to purchase the Predators. With this in place, it leaves Bettman open to do what he did in Pittsburgh - tell Balsillie to take a hike, and sell to the locals. With this level of local corporate/business support, you also have to think the odds of the Predators selling enough tickets to stay in town are pretty good, which may cause Balsillie to drop the bid on his own.

Huge news! Good way to start the weekend!

Update: Another good article from the Nashville Post is reporting that the legal roadblocks that the Metro Nashville government have been throwing up all of a sudden are part of why Balsillie has been moving faster to relocate, rather than just purchase the team. They go on to say that between Metro trying to say that two years isn't two years and that players don't count as part of the team's value, they are creating a hostile environment that may kill the Balsillie deal and lead to Leipold moving the team on his own...or of course selling to locals (as mentioned above).

(and happy anniversary to us)

Hurray!
Maybe the Preds could become a publicly held company, like the Maple Leafs. I would so buy a few shares.
