San Antonio Rampage

If memory serves me correctly, the current Rampage are the former Adirondack Red Wings.

Detroit mothballed the franchise in 1999 in anticipation of an arena that was never built in Toledo. They split with Anaheim in Cincinnati until the Griffins booted the Senators to Binghamton and affiliated with the Wings. Thus, they no longer needed to own the franchise and the same year, San Antonio began as the Florida-affiliated team after purchasing this franchise.

Wikipedia's information is contrary to all this, but I am pretty sure that's how it happened.
