That sounds like a warm climate to me.
I think weather of a city has little effect on whether or not players sign in your city. $$ talks.
Except in the potential case of Briere, with us offering the most and still getting turned down. And for what it's worth, I don't think this would exactly be the first time we've offered more money to a player and got turned down. I would bet Poile throws around more money than we think he does.
As far as the weather thing...when I personally think of a "warm climate" I think of a place that is mild and temperate for the entire year. Yeah, Southern California and Arizona get a little cool here and there in the winter, but the cities that I think of in that context are much warmer, much more often than Nashville is. But, some people may think differently. As far as how much that has to do with a player's potential playing city, I think players with a family might care a little more about it. They have a wife and kids that have to live in that city even when the player is on the road, and they have a say in it.
