For me, Nashville is a model of what can happen when you are patient and let a team build up a fanbase with good management/ ownership.

One of my most enjoyable times watching a game was the playoff match between the Preds and Canucks a couple of seasons ago at Bridgestone. What a great building and fans. (and city)

There has been a lot of insensitivity and immaturity on both sides when it comes to relocation. Winnipeg has been the target of a lot of hateful things over the years, and so has Atlanta, Nashville, the Florida teams and Phoenix.

Business aside, it sucks for a fan to lose their team. Always. People should try and understand that.
