IHL IN SAN ANTONIO STILL A POSSIBILITY FOR NEXT SEASON
Published May 1, 1995
Prospective IHL owner Greg Toole "hasn't given up his dream" of putting a franchise in San Antonio for next season, according to Tim Griffin in yesterday's SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS NEWS. Toole has reportedly met with every City Council member and has had "extensive" negotiations with Alamodome manager Mike Abington. Toole: "The point where we would stop for this coming season is fast approaching. But it's not here yet. There could be a lot of shifting in the next 30 days." Some City Council members, however, say that the city is taking a "cautious attitude" towards a new team -- due to the fact that the CHL Iguanas already play in the city (SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS NEWS, 4/30). SHARKS KEEP BLADES -- FOR NOW: The Sharks announced last week that they will maintain their arrangement with the IHL K.C. Blades for at least one more season. According to Sharks' Dir of Hockey Ops Dean Lombardi, they have agreed to another one-year deal, but he also said the Sharks "will take a look" at the AHL as a "possible alternative" when the deal expires (Mike Weaver, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 4/30).
