Well it may be a stretch but the Phantoms could share the Wells Fargo Center next year. I mean the scheduling would be hard with the Flyers, and 76ers having priority. But they could pull it off for the year, after all lets not foget the Phantoms used to play in Philly, so there may be some former season ticket holders willing to jump on board for a year, plus with the size of the market other fans would support the team, and then of course the affiliation with the Flyers doesn't hurt. They could even take on the Leigh Valley name.
Its just the big hurdle of scheduling. With the Flyers, 76ers, Wings, and Soul already sharing the arena, and they all already have overlapping seasons. However the Phantoms did manage to play some playoff games and Calder Cup finals there in the past.
