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).
