Utah = ECHL now

Well, it's now official. Elmore has taken his show  to the ECHL

No, we'll be dark this /next year ('05-06).

After that we're pretty much back where we were in mid season with multiple (maybe too many) options. There was a lot of talk toward the end of this year about the city  needing to have a tennent for the DCU and having an ECHL team lined up. The E is still interested, has a few ownerhip groups and, I'm quite certain, will be here by the end of next season if we don't land and AHL team. AHL is still the goal and, by this thread and then some, we have options there too.

In the mean time, it's way to early to get wound up about 06-07, and we'll be dark  in 05-06. Might as well sit back and enjoy next season on the road... not to mention this summer!

210 is correct. The San Antonio Dragons played (briefly) in the now-defunct International Hockey League. All these different hockey leagues and teams are confusing me. :-)

The team in San Antonio is the Rampage...

The Florida Panthers own 50% of the San Antonio Dragons. In order to purchase the old Utah AHL franchise they will first have to sell their share of the Dragons, as the American Hockey League will not allow them to own two teams at the same time. It worked out well for Utah fans; they now have a team in a lower minor league, but it can't be much of a letdown from having the worst team in the AHL. Cincinnati? I don't know what their plans for 2006-07 and beyond are; maybe they don't know either. The Barons will probably leave Cleveland after next season, though.

Based on published amounts of previous rents in Orlando there's no way any team is moving there any time soon unless there's a drastic reduction.

Florida will get it done and move them to Orlando as a Panthers affiliate.  I would think that San Antonio would then work for the Coyotes.  Thats my guess.

We looking at Cincy in 2006-07?

Mabey they can drop the price down once groups don't approch them?  They may have a "Summer Clearance Sale"!

It's a franchise that is, at least at last check, still too expensive.

Today's news, the Grizzlies are going back to the ECHL.  What does that mean for us?  A franchise open for purchase (if not already sold to someone else) to bring back here.
