Right, plus what Trigg said. Liarpold wasn't a Nashville guy, but the league wanted to get into the Arena and what had proven to be a good minor league market. Bettman set up Liarpold with the Nashville Bid. So if not for Craig, it would likely have been someone else.

I think that Liarpold doing that favor for Bettman is a big reason that nobody made a big stink about they way he gutted the Preds before jetting off to buy another team.
