However this is the same market Mostafa Afr(Elmira Jackals Owner) effectively killed back in the day.

Louisville has failed twice in the ECHL and once in the AHL. It has been over 10 years, so perhaps the time is now right.

optimistic, now w/U Louisville, EVEN w/ a new arena..... I doubt there's less of a fanbase now than a decade ago, and with that stain still on that market, I have to agree w/ GMR, jabberoski.... Louisville no longer has Lexington as a rival either, bc tht was their mentality, if Lexington can do it, so can we.... but college basketball is just too strong a challenge in this economic era for pro hockey to go head to head again, and the only reason why Lexington survived is they had the backing of USA Hockey.
