TWO EDMONTON BIDDERS IN THE MIX TO KEEP OILERS IN TOWN

          The future of the NHL Oilers "remained uncertain" as
     two "separate local consortiums put the final touches to
     deals they hope will keep the team" in Edmonton, according
     to Dolphin & MacDonald of the EDMONTON JOURNAL.  The group
     considered the "front-runner" is led by Cathy Roozen, heir
     to the Charles Allard fortune, and "software tycoon" Bruce
     Saville.  A second consortium is led by Robert Proznik, a
     property manager and restauranteur.  Dolphin & MacDonald
     report that "none of those interviewed ... thought Proznik
     and his consortium -- believed to include another
     restauranteur and a financial consultant -- had deep enough
     pockets to compete against Roozen and Saville."  Proznik
     could not be reached for comment (EDMONTON JOURNAL, 9/16).
