Contrary to your uneducated opinion here, Nashville actually breaks even, historically.

Two reasons; They have an internal cap ceiling and they consistently make the play-offs.

It just isn't a market in which to have the majority owner a huge hockey fan. Leipold wanted a team in an area of huge interest, as he stated in the interview during the 08 play-offs, when it was announced he had made the purchase.

He actually went into more detail about how Nashville broke even, just because of their consistent 60% chance of making the play-offs. Someone (on TV) also commented on that fact when Lemaire knocked Nashville out of the play-offs in the first year Leipold owned the Wild.
