I still think the NHL has a strong influence in determining whichever city the Predators reside in. I would imagine that any ratification for the relocation of a team would be necessary by the Board of Governors...along with Bettman's blessing. However, if Balsillie wants a team in his hometown bad enough, he could make it happen. As well, I also don't think Winnipeg is at the top of the relocation list, for the NHL, in North America...only in Canada though. Regardless, my point has been made about Winnipeg being considered as a potential destination city for the NHL. I certainly hope the Preds can stay in Nashville.
