Hamilton Jerked Around Once More


Now I'm confused.  There are reports at this hour that Craig Leipold has withdrawn his offer to sell the Nashville Predators to Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie.  This is a rather shocking development.  I had the team in Southern Ontario for the 2008/2009 season.

Once again Hamilton got their hopes up only to see them dashed.  I too was getting excited about having another NHL team down the road.  It all made so much sense.  Balsillie was offering $240 million and you'd think Craig Leipold would jump at the chance to salvage that kind of dough out of a loser franchise.

I'll let the dust settle on this one and see where we're at.  The team can't succeed in Nashville... maybe Leipold got a better offer from the Kansas City or Las Vegas folks?
