Fill Those Seats Nashville

from the Tennessean,

If the Nashville Predators don’t boost paid attendance by one-fourth for the rest of the NHL season, owner Craig Leipold will be able to ask for about $2 million in help from the city and lay groundwork for a possible departure.
Under the team’s 30-year lease, average paid attendance has to reach 14,000 a game for this year or Leipold can declare next year his pivotal “cure” season — a designation that among other things would let the club ask Metro government to buy thousands of tickets to prop up sales with taxpayer money.
It also would set the stage for the Predators to consider moving to another city at the end of next season, although they would have to pay an $18 million exit fee.
