"It's no different than last week's rumour and there's nothing to it," True North spokesman Scott Brown said Tuesday. "Of course we deny it; it's completely false."
What about the presser after the five-ringed circus...?
"It's no different than last week's rumour and there's nothing to it," Brown said.
The switching of the franchises in the AHL and WHL in Winnipeg and Saskatoon...?

"I got a chuckle out of it," he said.
"Something like that would certainly come across my desk." WHL commissioner Ron Robison said. "No way. There are no thoughts of moving them," he said. "Saskatoon is an original member in our league and an institution in that community. That's where they'll remain. I'm not sure where that story came from."
The expansion of the arena and the visit by engineers...?
"I've heard that one, too," said Brown. "There's no truth to it."
The sale of National Leasing by Chipman...? Strategic to access actual cash since the loan industry is hurting...
So, there you go...
Take it for what it's worth...
