I know about 15 years ago (when we got an AHL team) there was a great chance of the NHL coming here, and we actually had two interested owners. They ended up sabotaging each other, though, and killed any chances.

Wayne played some funky roles on the show and he reminded me of les--as an oiler fan--He still gets me annoyed
