Though Nashville started with an owner that couldn't find his ass with both hands look at what is here now.
In Nashville, TN there is a NHL franchise that is locally owned.(Who'd have thought that 10 years ago?)
In Nashville, TN there is a NHL franchise that is profitable. (Who'd have thought that just two years ago?)
In Nashville, TN there is a NHL franchise that is competitive.
In Nashville, TN there is a NHL franchise that has a growing fan base of individuals that is one of the strongest in the league along with a now growing (thanks to local ownership) corporate ticket base.
Last but not least and above all else in and around Nashville there is a booming youth hockey program that has some truly top-notch players that in another 6/7 years will be talked about on draft day.
That last sentence is after all what it's all about right? Expanding the reach/market of the product. Read a little about the expansion of corporations like....well McDonald's is probably the first and best example of the idea. Then maybe you'll get it.
