Hockey in Nashville

Hockey first appeared in Middle Tennessee in 1962 the form of the Eastern Hockey League's Dixie Flyers. One of the first tenants of the Municipal Auditorium, the Dixie Flyers played for nine seasons before folding in 1971. A decade later, Nashville Sounds owner Larry Schmittou made a second attempt at minor league hockey in Nashville when he brought the Nashville South Stars to town for the 1981-82 season. While featuring Bob Suter (Miracle on Ice team member and father of Nashville Predator Ryan Suter) as well as several of the parent club Minnesota North Stars' prospects, the franchise folded after just two seasons. In 1989, the ECHL Nashville Knights, perhaps the most popular of the minor league franchises, came to town. Coached by Predators assistant Peter Horachek, the Knights featured a potent offense that in 1994 set an ECHL record with 16 goals in one game.

In 1995, rumors began to circulate that the New Jersey Devils would be relocating to the planned Nashville Arena.[1] Nashville offered a $20 million relocation bonus to any team that would relocate,[2] and the Devils attempted to terminate their lease with New Jersey before finally restructuring it to stay put.[3] The New Jersey Devils are a professional ice hockey team based in Newark, New Jersey. ...

In January 1997, a group led by Minnesota businessman Craig Leipold made a formal presentation before the NHL requesting an expansion franchise[5]. In June, the league granted conditional franchises to Nashville, Columbus, Atlanta and Minnesota. The Nashville team would be scheduled to begin play in 1998 if they met the NHL requirement of selling 12,000 season tickets before March 31, 1998.[6] A month later, Leipold named former Washington Capitals general manager David Poile as the franchise's first general manager.[7] Portland Pirates head coach Barry Trotz was named the franchise's first head coach on August 6.[8] Capital Saint Paul Largest city Minneapolis Largest metro area Minneapolis-St. ...

On September 25, 1997, Leipold and team president Jack Diller held a press conference where they unveiled the franchise's new logo, a saber-toothed cat.[9] The logo was a reference to a tooth and leg bone found in in a cave in August 1971, during the excavation for the construction of the First American building in downtown Nashville.

On November 13, Leipold revealed at a press conference that his submission had won out and that the new franchise would be known as the Nashville Predators.[10]. is the 317th day of the year (318th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


As of January, however, the Predators were still at least 6,000 tickets short of the NHL imposed 12,000 season ticket goal. Rumors began to circulate that the team would move before the first puck ever hit the ice. One rumor had Leipold trading franchises with the Edmonton Oilers, with the Oilers moving to Nashville and the Nashville expansion franchise moving to Houston, Texas. Leipold shot this rumor down, "There is no chance".[11]. The Edmonton Oilers are a professional ice hockey team based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. ... Houston redirects here. ...


When awarded a franchise, the Predators got a very lucrative deal. The city of Nashville paid 31.50% of the $80-million fee to join the league.

Sale of the Predators

On May 23, 2007, Craig Leipold was reported to have reached a tentative agreement to sell the team to the Chairman and Co-CEO of Research In Motion, Jim Balsillie.[13] At the time, Leipold indicated that the team would play the 2007-08 season in Nashville but that the future of the team after that was not clear.[14] Balsillie had long been rumored to be interested in placing another team in Southern Ontario. The deal was expected to be finalized by late-June and had to be finished by June 30, 2007.[15] The proposed re-location site was Hamilton, Ontario, with Balsillie's new company, Golden Horseshoe Sports & Entertainment (named after the portion of Southern Ontario centred around the west-end of Lake Ontario, which is known as the Golden Horseshoe), securing exclusive rights to bring an NHL team to Copps Coliseum, as well as the rights to operate Hamilton Place, the Hamilton Convention Centre, and the associated parking facilities for the next 20 years.[16][17] Hamilton Mayor Fred Eisenberger stated that Balsillie's intention was to bring an NHL team to Copps in Hamilton,[18] and it was reported that Basillie would invest $140 million into the arena to bring it to modern NHL standards.[19] Relocating to Hamilton, however, may have required compensation to be offered to the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres because those teams have territorial rights to the region. Despite rumors to the contrary, it was reported that Kitchener-Waterloo was not being considered as a possible location for the team.[20][21] is the 143rd day of the year (144th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On June 13, it was announced that season ticket deposits for the "Hamilton Predators" would begin to go on sale through Ticketmaster the next day. A source said Balsillie's objective was to show the league's governors that there is a large base of ticket buyers in Southern Ontario.[22][23] After the drive started, over 13,000 season ticket deposits were sold, including all of the 70 available corporate box deposits, costing $5,000 each.[24][25] At the time, there were just under 9,000 season ticket holders in Nashville.[26] is the 164th day of the year (165th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On June 23, false information was leaked by several sources indicating that Leipold no longer wanted to sell the Predators to Basillie. Leipold was quick to distance himself from the rumours and advised that a deal with Basillie was still in the works.[29] Mr. Basillie's lawyer, Richard Rodier, was quoted as saying Craig Leipold's letter to the NHL "changed little if anything" in regards to the pending sale and was a mere formality as part of the sale process.[30] Canadian insiders believed that the false information and delay tactics may have been because the league did not want a team to move to Canada, something the NHL denies.[31] is the 174th day of the year (175th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


Subsequently, a campaign to land the team in Kansas City, Missouri, reportedly received a boost[32] in late June 2007. The National Post of Canada, citing anonymous sources, reported that Nashville Predators owner Craig Leipold plans to sell the team to San Jose venture capitalist William “Boots” Del Biaggio, who wanted to relocate the club to Kansas City’s new Sprint Center for the 2008-09 season.[32] Del Biaggio, who has a contract with Anschutz Entertainment Group to own an NHL club in Sprint Center, had made an offer reported to be for about $190 million for the Predators. In 2005, he had an agreement to purchase the Pittsburgh Penguins, but the club backed out of the deal after it won the NHL draft lottery and took Sidney Crosby with the first overall pick. [32] Balsillie’s brazen move of taking season-ticket deposits in Hamilton while the Predators still have a lease to play in Nashville upset NHL owners and commissioner Gary Bettman and reportedly caused Leipold to have second thoughts about selling to Balsillie.[32] Although a ticket drive in selling corporate suites was underway in Kansas City[33], it did not include season tickets like Balsille's move. Later that day, Leipold denied rumours that he was dealing exclusively with Del Biaggio, stating that he is open to all bids and that a deal with Basillie was still possible.[34] The Globe and Mail reported on July 4, 2007, a group of 30 investors became the third party to make a bid to purchase the franchise and keep the team in Nashville [35] Nickname: Location in Jackson, Clay, Platte, and Cass Counties in the state of Missouri. ...

Had the team relocated to Kansas City, it would have been the second time the NHL has ventured to the market. The Kansas City Scouts debuted in the 1974-75 season as an expansion franchise but relocated after a short two season run. The Scouts suffered poor attendance in both years, only securing 2,000 of 8,000 season ticket sales for the 1975-76 season.[36][37] Hamilton is also a former NHL market, being the home of the Hamilton Tigers from 1920 through 1925.
