TURNING OVER A NEW ARENA LEAF IN TORONTO?
Published November 24, 1997
Maple Leafs President Ken Dryden "is leaving the door open to a joint-arena deal" with the Raptors, but said that the team "is committed to a full investigation of a new, proposed arena at Exhibition Place," according to Jim Byers of the TORONTO STAR. Dryden's comment comes "amid reports of what one source called a battle royal amongst Maple Leaf Gardens shareholders." A source said Minority Owners, including Larry Tanenbaum, are "engaged in a battle" with Majority Owner Steve Stavro "to try to convince him to join the Raptors at the Air Canada Centre" (TORONTO STAR, 11/24). Leafs VP/Project Dir Tom Anselmi said that the team "will go to the Canadian National Exhibition board" today with plans for a sports, retail and entertainment complex that would include the new Maple Leaf Gardens" (GLOBE & MAIL, 11/22).
