The lawyer for the Predators’ prospective new owner says Jim Balsillie wants to take a run at the Stanley Cup in the coming season and that Balsillie plans to give general manager David Poile the payroll to do so.
Toronto-based attorney Richard Rodier made the comments in response to a Tennessean report which stated that Poile had not received any payroll guidance, despite the fact only three weeks remain before the unrestricted free agency period begins.
“We want to give David Poile a very generous budget to build the team however he wants, having regard only to the league salary cap and not to any budget restraints imposed by ownership,’’ Rodier said. “This is about winning, buying a team that has a shot at winning the Cup in our view.’’
