Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie, the co-CEO of BlackBerry maker Research In Motion, had hoped to get an audience at the NHL’s board of governors meeting next week in New York to clear the air on his tentative purchase of the Nashville Predators and possible relocation to Hamilton, but it’s not going to happen.
Neither the relocation question or the actual vote on the ownership transfer will be on the board of governors’ agenda and Balsillie won’t be invited to the meeting, a source told The Canadian Press on Wednesday.
Another source said that the NHL considers the request to deal with relocation ‘‘premature’’ because there is a valid and binding lease in Nashville.
Balsillie’s camp doesn’t seem concerned.
