From NLL.com

The National Lacrosse League wishes to thank all of the fans in Minnesota who supported the league. We hope you will continue to follow the NLL and encourage all fans interested in seeing the NLL back in Minnesota to contact the Xcel Energy Center at info@xcelenergycenter.com to let them know you want the NLL to return to the Twin Cities.

Nice way to deliver a backhanded slap for a bad arena deal. Will the NLL return to Minnesota? I would not expect a return anytime in the near future.

Just swap out Minnesota for Edmonton. The NLL can use the same template. For the eventual Edmonton move.

Sorry Minnesota fans. Philly fans feel your pain. More to come later…..

NLL Statement

Georgia

Milwaukee

Rumblings of an NLL coming to Nashville are still out there. Too bad Edmonton and Minnesota situations. Will overshadow the NLL Champions Cup.  The off the floor issues. Are always such more entertaining than the on the floor action sometimes. While I can understand the NLL franchises going to smaller arenas.  However,It always seems like one step forward and two steps back with the NLL.

Buckle up the fun is just starting…..

Not surprised by this announcement. The writing was on the wall for sometime. Where will they move to? Another NLL team done in by a bad arena lease. Or at least that is the official story.

Nashville…..

Swarm clean house

Not surprising given the record in Minnesota. The entire coaching staff was let go. Should be interesting to see who ends up with the job. As there is a lot of talent in Minnesota. Including incoming draft picks. They just need to put it all together.
