I've now had a couple people mention to me that Portland Winterhawks owner Bill Gallacher has been interviewed in media here (and apparently a small outlet at that, because it hasn't hit TV or The Oregonian here) and discussed having AHL along with the Hawks (and even NHL, for which that story hit this week). Thing is, no bigs in town believe he'll get NHL past Paul Allen. However, AHL may well be on the table here. If the report is accurate that sanctions are not being reduced, then Gallacher could very well pull the $10 million he's offered for Veterans Memorial Coliseum renovations off the table.
There's also the matter of Allen's health issues and increasing calls for him to sell the TrailBlazers and the Rose Garden... so there's a LOT of moving parts in Portland.
