Would-be Predators owners meet with NHL commissioner
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Nashville Predators owner Craig Leipold and the NHL are giving Nashville every chance to keep the hockey team in Music City. Now it's up to the fans to respond.
Leipold and representatives of the local group bidding to buy the team met Wednesday with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman in New York. The meeting was successful enough that they sent an e-mail with a statement to Herb Fritch, chief executive officer of HealthSpring Inc. in Nashville.
