Well one rumor squashed about an NHL acquistion for a potential owner's league(at least for the time being):
WHA denies reports of sale to NHL

In a number of current NHL markets there are enough arenas in the area so that both an Owners League and an NHLPA-backed league could field teams. In some cases, they may have to play at oddball times because of other tenants (NBA, minor league hockey, AFL, ABA, for example). More than likely, it would be an NHLPA League that would probably end up at these secondary arenas if they choose to put their teams in current NHL markets. One example being the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area. Office Depot Center (The Panthers' arena), American Airlines Arena, and Miami Arena. Another is the NYC metro area, with MSG, Continental Airlines Arena, and Nassau Colisseum.
