We have had talks with Weber, "we know the zip code of the area of what he wants and we're prepared to give it to him". We can give him what he wants, and he will be the captain for many years to come, we've budgeted the money that Weber wants. Jokingly he says, "So if this doesn't work, it's all Poile's fault".

- Goal is to do something for the fans each year that is significantly better than year before. Ownership is not happy with the merchandise.
Thanks for the summary!!

I like these points.

Love that about Weber, Suter. Sounds like negotiations should go pretty smooth.

Also, how disappointed will I be after scanning the fishwrap for an article about the PREDS donating $125,000 to the Children's Cancer Hospital earlier today?????
good one.....

Oh you won't find that. They never reported that the Preds donated $130,000 at the Nashville Rising Concert, or that the Preds won one of the Nashville Business Journal's 2010 Corporate Philanthropy Awards ("The judges were blown away by all that the organization does for the community, and will recognize the Nashville Predators for their outstanding philanthropic efforts at a special section and awards luncheon (on Thursday, May 13) celebrating 12 winning for-profit companies who go above and beyond in their philanthropic efforts, making a tremendous positive impact on local charities and non-profits.") I mean, the Titans have training camp previews 2 weeks before camp, we couldn't even get an ongoing prospect camp covered.
