NHL DENIES REPORT THAT MOVE AWAY FROM IHL IS AFOOT
Published March 8, 1995
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).
