Leipold issues statement regarding reports of another deal
/ Nashville Predators
Predators owner Craig Leipold has issued a statement in response to a report in Thursday's Canadian National Post that begins, "Canadian billionaire Jim Balsillie's deal to purchase the Nashville Predators of the NHL and relocate the team to Hamilton appears unlikely as the current owner prepares to announce an exclusive deal with a new bidder, the National Post has learned."
In response, Leipold released the following statement Thursday: “We are currently free to explore any and all options regarding the sale of the Nashville Predators. However, until and unless there is a binding agreement in place, we do not plan to comment on the status of Predators ownership. We will not comment on rumors and speculation.”
