Atlanta hasn't really had a team that's easily to support. Year after year they're looking forward to the draft, the team has no direction or identity. I mean really if you asked me what type of "team" the Predators are, I wouldn't even think about it before I answered, "they're a hard working aggressive forechecking team that has great defenseman and a great goalie".

What would you answer if I asked that about Atlanta? I think if Atlanta got a hard working team, like the Predators, that had some sort of direction, they'd catch on as a market.

And sooner or later if you keep putting a product on the ice that doesn't compete, they fans are going to turn on you.

The Yotes, I can't say. They're not in the south, they're in the west, totally different...
