    Mr. Williams is anticipating an extension from True North on the lease. Don't think so. St.John's has always been plan b for True North. Let's see: St.John's is 3,233 kilometres from the parent club. Next season, just 707 kilometres away from Winnipeg, a brand new, 100 million dollar arena opens in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. For those that do not know, Sioux Falls has just been ranked into the top 10 for American minor sports markets. As for Canada, how about Saskatoon, just 710 kilometres from Winnipeg. After this season, the Saskatoon Blades lose their exclusivity rights on Credit Union Centre. I don't think its any mistake that Winnipeg is playing its last pre-season game in Saskatoon this month. Granted, the Ice Caps are a box office hit, thus the AHL has got to find Mr. Williams another team.
