I really don't understand. Are they moving or not? Make up your mind already! ksdjklsj

Wow. Today sure is a crazy day. First the two big trades and now this... crazy.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.

Leipold is, with the exception of Bettman, certainly the biggest douchebag working in the league.

They'll still be sold before too long. Legionnaire was talking about a local group of richie-riches that wanted to pump their family money into the team to keep them in Nashville.

It just means that we will probably be going through the same thing all over again in another 5-10 years when the new owners realize that Nashville (with the exception of some 10,000 die-hards) doesn't get hockey.

This is good news for Wings fans. We need the Nashville franchise to stay in the West if we want to move east when they expand to Vegas and wherever else, and if we don't move east, we need as many teams in the eastern and central time zone as possible.

I guess the big question is what happens now? I'd be intrested to see if the sale can actually be cancled. This has been one hell of a day.

I really feel for all you die-hard Preds fans, both of you should check your blood pressure.

The Wings moving East is a pipe dream.

what would his motivation be to keep a team that he hates so much? i smell a conspiracy. i think bettman "forced" him to find another buyer. this is the second time balsillie has been BLACK BALLED from the league.

This is bad news. I wanted more 7:30 starts not 8:30 starts. Now he wont sell to hamilton we will not get that extra Eastern time zone team in the west. mad.gif


Oh well the Nashville owner can keep losing his money if he wants too.

If they moved to Hamilton, they'd be in the East. Maybe they'd be in the West for a year or 2, but there will soon be 2 expansion teams in the West: Vegas and KC/Seattle/Portland/Houston. If everything stays as is, one Western team would need to move East. If Nashville remains in Nashville, we'll be first in line. If Nashville moved to Hamilton, that's that.

There is nowhere that Nashville can move in the West that will benefit us. 8:30 starts and 500 mile trips are much better for us than Nashville moving to any of the above mentioned potential expansion cities.

Well futher in the night on TSN they said the deal can still happen if Balsillie and Leipold come to a binding agreement or something like that.

Lepoild is an absolute primadonna i don't get this at all. You've got a guy who wants to buy the team, you have people out selling the team when it doesn't even exist. Yet i feel that somehow the NHL is behind this, trying desperately to keep this team where it is.

Is anybody else besides me having a flashback to the movie "Major League"



Maybe the Predators will be bad enough to the point of knocking attendance down to the point where they can move the franchise to Hamilton or Kansas City.



Wait, now that the Predators fire sale is in full gear, I think we can safely say that the Wings have clinched a playoff spot for the 2008 playoffs.
