Leipold to buy the Wild?

I thought Preds fans might find this interesting.

According to Arenadigest.com:

Quote:
We've heard a buzz coming out of St. Paul that former Nashville Predators owner Craig Leipold has been talking with the ownership of the Minnesota Wild about buying the team.
See here (Dec. 17, 2007):

this is very old news. he's looking to buy a "share" of the team, but was last told that they're not looking for any new owners.

Not that surprising really.

Leipold screwed up here and couldn't fix it. Plus, Minnesota is closer to home then Nashville.

At least Minnesota is one of the few markets that he couldn't screw up...

Perhaps. I read about where Leipold might be interested in investing in the Wild, but not where he was looking to buy the franchise from the current owners.

Yes we all heard a couple of weeks ago about how Leipold was going to buy the Wild, the whole franchise, and it was all part of some conspiracy by Bettman and the NHL to keep Canada's "good friend" Jim Balsillie out of the NHL.






By the way, yes that was an actual statement from a Toronto broadcast.

I don't remember the network, but it was Bill Watters, and it was in between the first and second period of that game.

I believe it was the TSN broadcast on Center Ice. I will double check tonight... I still have the broadcast on my Satellite DVR.

No, I don't think it was TSN-- maybe Rogers Sportsnet.

Apparently I no longer have the Leafs vs. Preds recording on my DVR anymore. Oh well, I cannot confirm the network. Sorry.

It probably was SportsNet... I cannot remember.
