I want to say thanks for all the other teams fans who have stopped buy and offered kind words. I was harsh when I suggested that the fans on the boards would be licking their chops. There is a large group who have been giving our fans, city and team nothing but crap for a very long time and we've had to defend our fans, city and team alot. I'd like to think perhaps they'll feel fulfilled when the Predators leave, but they'll likely continue and find another market to bash until the NHL somehow meets their desired idea of a league. But again, to those with kind words, thanks again. I've been a huge fan of not just my team, but every team, the sport, the NHL fans and everything. I'll still follow the NHL, but it will be hard to see guys like Legwand, Vokoun, Radulov, Weber, etc. all suiting up for another franchise competing for the Stanley Cup.
I'd love to think we have a hope of keeping our team, but theres no chance in my opinion. This new owner has had bad news written all over him since he tried to buy and possibly move the Penguins (something I was TOTALLY against). He'll likely claim to want to keep the team here, but the "out-clause" will be evoked and the man will do nothing to improve attendance (through marketing, free agent signings, corporate selling etc.). He'll then point at our bad season and move the team so he can have his dream.
If the numbers reported in this thread are true, I doubt a guy would pay that much just to keep the team in this city.
