Franchises like Nashville may be struggling to create a fan base in a non-traditional market, but they are an example of an extremely well run organization with great management.
When I write " well managed team" I am talking about the business side, not necessaraly the hockey side.

As for Nashville, they can be as good as they want, but it's not and never be a real hockey market. I am sad for the owner and management of that team. They almost lost two of their franchise players in the same Summer.

But oiutside the 17,000-18,000 fans that are going to the games, how many more are they in that area and what are the TV ratings ?
