INVESTOR SAYS MN "WILL COME THROUGH" IF NHL GIVES CHANCE
Published April 25, 1995
Twin Cities-investor Harvey Mackay, "a leader" in MN's bid to bring the NHL to the Target Center, says there would be "an excellent chance" of landing the Jets if they leave Winnipeg. Mackay, who met with Jets officials last weekend, said yesterday he believes the area could put together the $75M the team could cost (Vancouver PROVINCE, 4/25). STOP FOR MOOSE: If the Jets leave Winnipeg for the MN, "suggestions have been made" that the IHL Minnesota Moose move to Winnipeg, according to this morning's WINNIPEG FREE PRESS. Kelly Taylor reports that IHL spokesperson Tim Bryant said "that wouldn't be a bad idea. ... Moving would probably be the right thing for the Moose to do if the NHL moved into their market." However, Bryant said there has been no interest from Winnipeg (WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, 4/25).
