The city of Stockton may buy out owner and arena management company, but then might want to "flip" the franchise to another owner.

Gotta wonder if SVSE might be interested?

EDM is probably more interested than SJS, unless SJ plans on exploiting the CBA next season or two.

According to Mike Lehr at the end of last season SVSE has been looking at purchasing an ECHL franchise for some time, but because just about all of them lose a ton of money it was not something that made economic sense at that time. I can't imagine in a worse economy the bottom line on ECHL teams has gotten better...

...so my guess is that unless they see value in an ECHL franchise that's more than the amount those franchises hemorrhage they won't be buying one.
