Allow me to name the team:
Either the Graceland Hipshakers or the Memphis Sun, Stax or Volt.

The trainwreck experiment that was the Chicago Express will not return for the 2012-13 season.

Whats the deal with the Reno Raiders & will they ever play in Reno? There is a new events center where the NBA D-League Bighorns play.

The events center is not that new.

It's primary tenant is not the Bighorns; it's the concert promotion business. They take every possible Saturday. I'm not terribly sure it could fit a full rink anyway. Reno needs another option for hockey.

Funny thing happened yesterday... the IOC and the US Olympic Committee settled a longstanding issue over some revenue streams that surprisingly come to USOC. That will probably give American cities a better chance to win an Olympic bid sometime in the foreseeable future.

Now we'll see if Reno wants to chip in for a real hockey facility, since the region already has an active committee seeking the 2022 Winter games. Don't hold your breath... but keep an eye out.
