IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY MAY NOT COME

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).
