It's summer, it's hot — so let's talk about hockey

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

"Our hope remains that the combination of passionate fans that we know this team has, along with renewed efforts of the business community, will enable the franchise to meet the necessary goals to make the franchise successful on and off the ice in Nashville."
â€"Craig Leipold
Nashville Predators owner

Leipold and company should be proud of themselves for trying to keep the Predators in Nashville the right way.

Contrasting the NHL’s talk of blocking the team’s sale to Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie, Leipold and the residents of Nashville are working hard to prevent a move to Hamilton by selling tickets rather than playing politics.

While a seventh Canadian hockey franchise would be a gift to fans north of the border, it’s good to see a non-traditional market rallying around its team.
