Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Alan Adams at Sportsnet,
Paul Kariya and Peter Forsberg are both unrestricted free agents this summer and don’t look for them to be back in Nashville next season.
And don’t look for Nashville to be active in the free agent market. You can’t spend money you don’t have. General Manager David Poile has one hell of a selling job on his hand to get anyone to sign with his team.
The Predators didn’t average 14,000 per game in ‘06-07, and it’s in praise of folly to think the fans will pack the Sommet Centre, unless selected suckers don’t mind paying major league prices to see a team that might win a minor league title.
Maybe the Predators should mirror what the Carolina Hurricanes did when they played to sparse crowed in Greensborough. They put a curtain around the upper bowl of the arena in an effort to make the place looked packed.
