TWO EDMONTON BIDDERS IN THE MIX TO KEEP OILERS IN TOWN
Published September 16, 1997
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).
