Never said I want the Predators. I would like a team. How that comes to pass is another story.
As for Jim Balsillie's truthfulness, he made no bones about the fact that he wants a team in Hamilton. Can't be any more truthful than that.
Detroit is 3 hours away. Buffalo only shows it's games on MSG which is NOT available in Ontario. As for the Leafs, the have LEAF TV as well as Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts. They are the richest team in the league and they DONT want to share. There is a ton of money in Hamilton and it's environs that will NEVER go to the Leafs. A HUGE money making propostition is just waiting to be tapped in Hamilton.
Within a 90 minute drive, Hamilton can draw on 4 to 5 MILLION people. There are people willing ready and able to put a franchise into Copps Coliseum, there just seems to a roadblock by person or persons unknown. Even Forbes stated a Hamilton Ontario NHL franchise would be the 4th most valuable franchise right out of the gate. GO FIGURE
