NHL DENIES REPORT THAT MOVE AWAY FROM IHL IS AFOOT

     The NHL is proposing that five IHL franchises move to the
AHL and that the NHL tranfser all IHL working agreements to the
AHL, according to an AP report picked up in this morning's
CINCINNATI ENQUIRER.  The plan would transfer IHL teams in
Cleveland, Indianapolis, Kalamazoo, Peoria and Ft. Wayne to the
AHL.  Cincinnati Cyclones' GM Doug Kirchofer downplayed concerns
that the IHL's value as a developmental league is diminishing,
but added:  "They have in their power the means to make us what
we don't want to be."  Panthers Asst GM Chuck Fletcher said he
was unaware of any move away from the IHL (Randy Oppenheimer,
CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 3/8).
