JOINT DEAL MAY BE THE ONLY WAY TO KEEP THE PANTHERS IN FLA
Published July 21, 1995
The only thing "likely" to keep a the NHL in South FL is a deal between its two richest men: Wayne Huizenga and Micky Arison, according to the MIAMI HERALD. Panthers Owner Huizenga and Heat Owner Arison both want out of the Miami Arena and both want taxpayers to pay for a new arena. Metro Commissioner Maurice Ferre: "If Huizenga and Arison came together and told us they wanted a modern stadium, we would have to act. If they don't come together, then there is really nothing to talk about" (MIAMI HERALD, 7/20).
