LA nor SJ are interested, SSF, SJ has thrown its support behind Worcester ever since the Peoria fiasco, which now w/ the sale of the Rivermen REVERSES that decision that stripped Worcester of its original Ice Cats....
Isn't Stockton an Oilers ECHL affiliate, now that SF has entered the ECHL, SO none of the above scenario will exist
