Predators on track to sell out every home game for first time

For the Nashville Predators, the days of struggling to sell enough tickets to ensure their home in Music City are long gone.

The hockey franchise is on track to sell out every home game this season, which would be a first in franchise history. In fact, buoyed by last yearís successful All-Star Game at Bridgestone Arena, Predators executives say the teamís business operations have been on a hot streak.

The team has brought back former corporate partners, expanded relationships with other partners and introduced cutting-edge ticket sales strategies that put season ticket sales at an all-time high.

It was just seven years ago that the Predators were in danger of being sold and possibly leaving town because of poor ticket sales and lack of local corporate partners. If the team had slipped below an average of 14,000 fans per game, it could have triggered a clause in its old lease agreement allowing it to opt out and leave town.

The All-Star Game put the spotlight of the hockey world on Music City, and the Predators turned the event into a weeklong music, hockey and entertainment festival. Team executives knew the event was a success, but it took a year for the Predators to appreciate how much it meant to their bottom line.

It also helps that they have a player that can actually be marketed like the swagger that is present within Nashville in PK Subban, certainly more so then the stuck up media market in Montreal.

I read that as Smallville and was very confused as to why that show would come up.

49 and 6 stuck around and signed some autographs after. I think 49 looks like he's developing well, good future I think.

Canucks were playing their 6th road game in 10 days and started their backup. You were fine.

368 forwards have played 300+ 5v5 minutes this year.

Milan Lucic is 307th in points/hour, sandwiched between Jack Skille and Ryan Reaves.

On the third line with Sutter.

Edmonton has more young talent and Vancouver can't score, so I don't know if they're really comparable.

Most of the talent has been at least ok. Leadership has sucked. Barrie has been flat out bad all season.

I agree. 4k+ red is the only acceptable choice.


... I wonder if I should do another full playthrough... But naaaah I don't think anything carries over anyway so not worth it for a 3rd time.

I know nothing carries, but I felt like playing for fun, also it's my first PC playthrough. ME1 is so much better with texture mods. ME2&3 are a pain to mod beyond controller support.

This makes me happy, trailer reminded me of Children of Man, which is one of my favorites.
