Giuliani to create new hockey league? (article)

The Toronto Star reported Wednesday that former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and leading Canadian diplomat Maurice Strong may join forces to create a new hockey league if the NHL continues its lockout, which wiped out the entire 2004-05 season.
According to a 71-page business plan reviewed by the newspaper and circulated to prospective Wall Street investors, the new league -- tentatively called the International Hockey Association -- would rely on Giuliani's New York consulting company to help raise as much as $5 billion in seed money.

This got a short mention on ESPN today and is quite interesting. I hope there is some hockey played next year, be it NHL, IHA, or WHA. By the way the WHA is not updating their site, which probably means it is dead.
