-- TOO SMALL FOR NHL, AND TOO SMALL FOR THE "I"?

Fred Comrie, owner of the IHL L.A. Ice Dogs, was in Winnipeg last week to discuss potential IHL franchise ownership with three local groups, but the WINNIPEG FREE PRESS's Scott Taylor writes the league's $8M expansion fee "is a rather large investment." Taylor notes that crowds of under 5,000 and 6,000 have attended Jets preseason games as fans have had an attack of "sudden indifference." Taylor adds potential IHL owners may want to analyze if Winnipeg's burned fans will support second-tier hockey. Comrie says the IHL is talking with six cities about expansion, including Winnipeg and New Orleans (FREE PRESS, 9/27).
