Predator Holdings fifth worst owners in the NHL according to SI

Don't shoot the messenger, just wanted to see how you guys feel about this from Sports Illustrated:

Quote:
No offense to the Music City -- it's just not a hockey town. If things had gone right, the Predators would now be playing in Hamilton, Ontario, where a hockey team could thrive. But former owner Craig Leipold backed out of a deal to sell the Preds to Jim Balsillie after the BlackBerry pioneer couldn't promise he would keep the team in Nashville. Instead, a panicked consortium of 30 local investors put together a deal to keep the team from moving. The Preds now face a shaky future in Nashville as the team can break its lease if it loses enough money or attendance drops. With the economy facing an uncertain future and pro hockey fighting against the grain in a non-traditional market, Hamilton may end up getting its team after all.

How do we feel????

Who cares. When did SI start being relevant again? Writers like that will cause them to be irrelevant for years to come.

I won't shoot the messenger, but I will point out that he's delivering goods written on toilet paper in feces.

thats just a bonehead comment by SI, typical of someone who has never watched hockey and there is no justification to his comments

SI? The only reason they sell subscriptions is so the guys can sneak the swimsuit issue away.

That paragraph breaks all Toronto newspaper records for factual errors in hockey reporting.

Exactly. Starting with the 30 owners, Leopold didn't back out JB didn't put a binding offer up.

"If things had gone right the Predators would be playing in Hamilton..."

What? I think things went right that we have people in this city that cared enough to put their money together to keep the team here.




Or, you know, just ignore the fact that attendance went UP and the team MADE money last season.
