In what appears to be another step toward a divorce between the City of Evansville and the IceMen, Mayor Lloyd Winnecke held a press conference on Thursday to announce (among other things) the City is exploring the option of bringing in another hockey team now that lease negotiations with the IceMen have reached an "impasse".

Joining Mayor Winnecke was Evansville Redevelop Commission President, Randy Alsman, who has been spearheading negotiations between the City and the team.
