In today's TORONTO STAR, Jim Proudfoot reports that "Unless sanity prevails, Toronto will end up with three new arenas by the end of the century -- in addition to the SkyDome." There has been discussion on building an arena for the NBA's Raptors, and a new venture for the Maple Leafs. The third building would be "the one Michael Cohl and Bill Ballard will erect at Exhibition Place, a home for Concert Productions extravaganzas." According to a city's financier, "The only proposition that makes sense finds the new basketball team joining forces with Maple Leaf Gardens in putting up a building that can accommodate hockey as well." The Raptors will play in the SkyDome until their own stadium is completed (9/22).
