Giuliani proposes new hockey league

Former New York City mayor may act if NHL lockout persists

TORONTO (SportsTicker) June 1 2005 - 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.

the other guy creates them

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.

Giuliani became known as “America’s Mayor” after he held New York together in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.


Obviously Giuliani's abilities in handling misfortune and catastrophe makes him especially qualified to run an NHL-level hockey league.
