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.
I'll change it if Rum, Pelts, or Hans seconds the motion, or we get a link for the sales detail.
The Chicago Wolves = 2008 Calder Cup Champions!
