Another Steve Newlin find: the Amarillo Gorillas have already lost two of their best players in Ben Maidment and Brandon Carper, both headed back to Deutschland.
Perhaps the league plans to move quickly on El Paso after all: it's almost certain the Buzzards players would become CHL free agents if the team doesn't move forward (expect Rio Grande Valley to go after a few guys, with Jeff Levy as recruiting point man). But I also hear the four expansion-available players won't be included in the draft if there's no team to expose them. I'm sure the next 72 hours will be interesting.
And wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall when the coach's committee -- Doug Sauter, Doug Shedden, Don McKee and Brent Hughes -- convenes?
And oh yeah -- does Tulsa have a coach?
