Buy A Piece Of The Preds

from the Tennessean,

Predators owner Craig Leipold says he’s looking for local ownership to buy up to 40 percent of the team, in hopes that such a move would make inroads into local businesses and improve attendance.
Leipold’s comments come two days after a Tuesday crowd of less than 12,000 watched the Predators beat Anaheim in a match-up of the top two teams in the Western Conference.
“Attendance has been an issue for six or seven years,”’ Leipold said. “I think our players were very disappointed in attendance when the number one team is playing the number two team in the league. That hadn’t happened in our history and it doesn’t happen that often in the NHL.”
