Preds to stay until 2011
Multiple sources have confirmed to THN.com a deal has been reached between the city of Nashville and a prospective local ownership group to rework the team’s lease at the Sommet Center that will guarantee the Predators remain in Nashville until at least through the 2010-11 season.
That said, this team needs to start selling tickets, a problem the new ownership group will hopefully be able to start tackling before this becomes a lost season. Even with the new concessions from the city, the Predators aren't a sustainable entity with only 12,000 or 13,000 fans in the building.
They've got their work cut out for them.
