REPORT: WATSON/MCNAIR READYING TO PITCH IN FOR NHL OILERS

          Houston business exec Robert McNair and IHL Aeros Owner
     Chuck Watson "are planning to pitch in" to keep the NHL
     Oilers in Edmonton, according to Bernard Pilon of the
     EDMONTON SUN.  Watson and McNair are wrapping up a deal
     where they would make up the difference in what local
     investors need to buy the team for US$70M.  Watson: "That's
     been the plan all along, but I don't expect any conclusion
     until mid- to late January."  The amount the duo would
     contribute "isn't known."  Watson and McNair "won't wind up
     owning any part of the team" (EDMONTON SUN, 1/6).
