TURNING OVER A NEW ARENA LEAF IN TORONTO?

          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).
