In today’s episode, I talked with Eleanor Kennedy (@NSHBIZKennedy) of the Nashville Business Journal. She was kind enough to talk about the economic impact of the Nashville PredatorsStanley Cup Final run and gave her insight into some other aspects of supporting a hockey team in the South.

Included in this episode:

  • We discussed the broader impact of the Predators SCF run and it is literally .05 billion dollars.
  • Also, if you owned a digital screen company, you did well.
  • IT’S SETTLED. STANLEY CUP FINAL >>>> SUPER BOWL
  • We talked about how the Preds marketing strategies have changed over the years. (Keyword: GOLD)
  • We talked about (but also did not talk about) the new jerseys.
  • Surprise! The team made money! And its ticket, concessions, and merchandise sales translated to $2.7 million for the city.
  • We talked about the prospects of a major league soccer team being impacted by the Cup run.
  • I also briefly reviewed the expansion draft, including the loss of James Neal to the Vegas Golden Knights.
