He's no Nick Saban.

He's not going to sit up in his seat in Cell Block 303 and lie that he's not going anywhere and to stop asking him about it.

Instead, he's doing it the admirable way: keeping it private.

Former Predators owner Craig Leipold has been rumored as the next owner of the Minnesota Wild, but, when asked by The Tennesseans John Glennon, he declined comment. (link to article below)

While Preds fans and Cell Block Inmates alike would be sad to see his go to Minnesota, let's face it, the guy is all class. Just like when Tomas Vokoun returned to Nashville for the first time since being traded away to the Florida Panthers, we will respectfully root against him if he, in fact, is the next owner of another NHL team.

And, in all honesty, we should all respect and encourage his desire to own the Wild. He's a man who wanted to own a team but a business man who didn't want to lose money while doing it. Minneapolis, near his home of Racine, Wisconsin, would be an ideal place to own a franchise and Minnesota isn't exactly struggling at the turn-styles.

We here in 303 support Mr. Leipold in whatever endevour he decides to venture into next...

...even if we will be rooting against him.
