Leipold promises higher payroll

From the Fishwrapper:

http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs....507270431/1028


One concern I have about his comments is that it seems like they are depending on getting part of the revenue-sharing money by keeping the payroll low. This type of budgeting approach might keep us out of the big FA market b/c they won't increase payroll to the point that it keeps them from getting the revenue-sharing allocation.

Don't we just have to be in the bottom 15 of the league to get revenue sharing? If this is so, I think he thinks that the magic $28m number will do that for us. I expect around a $24m payroll to begin with to leave some wiggle room for mid-season trades. I also don't realistically think we'll sign any of the new UFA's for higher than $2-2.5m.

You're somewhat correct. From NHL.com:

What Clubs will be eligible for revenue-sharing subsidies?

All Clubs that: (1) are ranked in the bottom half (bottom 15) in League revenues, and (2) operate in markets with a Demographic Market Area of 2.5 million or fewer TV households.

Not sure where the payroll components comes into it though

Until we start selling out more and have a higher season ticket base we won't be able to max out the cap. I don't mind that right now.

I can't imagine Nashville having a market area of 2.5m or more tv households.

I think its probaly about 1.5 million or so in the Nahville Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area. Not sure how many TV's the nashville stations reach outside that area. It MIGHT be close but I expect NO CIGAR...Poile would have NEVER agreed to any cap Nashville was not below! I've a good idea. Lets UNLOAD the Titans and pick up major leagur baseball. Baseball does NOT conflict with hockey= more butts in the seats...but wait...does the average beer swilling football fan have the intelligence to apreciate hockey...heck yeas as long as there are few fights and lots of cold beer!

I think Metro Nashville has about 1.5 and Metro Clarksville has about .2 add, Cookeville, Columbia, etc, I'd say we might push another .2 so maybe 1.9.
