On Friday night, after the first period of the Skipjacks' game against Rochester, Ebright also asked fans to make season-ticket deposits for next season.

Portland, Maine -- The differences are at once obvious. The team that was the Baltimore Skipjacks -- and little more than an afterthought in Baltimore -- is now the Portland Pirates, the hottest ticket in this city of 65,000 on Casco Bay.The story of the Pirates' success is as much a story of the mind-set of the city's residents as it is a story of the team's striking on-ice accomplishments. In 1993-94, their first season here, the Pirates won the American Hockey League's Calder Cup. They opened this season with a 17-game unbeaten streak, setting a record for the best start by any North American hockey team.

The goal, scored by Trevor Halverson, was as pretty as any you would ever want to see. Three crisp passes preceded it, moving Moncton goalie Sean Gauthier so far out of position he could have ordered up a hot dog and soft drink. The fans jumped for joy.Unfortunately, there weren't that many of them -- fans, not hot dogs -- the announced crowd being 1,896. What the heck, it was Monday night. In a regular season that stretches from early October to the first week in April, it was/is the Skipjacks' only Monday date.

PORTLAND, Maine -- Portland Pirates owner Tom Ebright may have taken his American Hockey League team out of Baltimore, but that doesn't mean the AHL -- or Ebright -- has forgotten Baltimore.AHL president Dave Andrews wants his 16-team league to expand, and Ebright is chairman of the AHL's expansion committee."We don't have one meeting without Baltimore coming up," said Ebright. "Our feeling is, with the right ownership and environment, it could re-emerge. Maybe the mere fact that I left and a new owner comes in would invigorate the business community."

"The young guns," Barry Trotz called them, and the Skipjacks coach could hardly wait to send them into the American Hockey League.He had Steve Konowalchuk, Keith Jones and Reggie Savage. They would lead the offense, Trotz reasoned, and Shawn Anderson and Ken Sabourin would anchor the defense.That, at least, was the way Trotz reasoned at the outset of this season. The trouble was, all those players were taken away from him.Despite that, the Skipjacks qualified for the AHL Southern Division's fourth and final playoff spot by beating the Hershey Bears in their next-to-last regular-season game Saturday night.

Centre Management, the arm of Abe Pollin's sporting empire that manages several arenas along the East Coast, isn't sure Baltimore wants to buy the product Tom Ebright is selling.That product is an East Coast Hockey League team in a town on the brink of losing its American Hockey League Skipjacks.And when Ebright, the Skipjacks owner, began negotiations this week on a lease at the Baltimore Arena for his would-be ECHL team, he was in for a surprise."There seems to be some resistance on the part of Centre Management to have the Coast League team in the building, in that we have made a money proposal to them that's better financially than the existing contract," Ebright said.

The Skipjacks got a $10,000 pledge of support from th Orioles yesterday.The bad news is that it appears to be a moot point.That's because the Baltimore City Council resolution that proposes $150,000 in city funds and $150,000 in corporate funds is only for an American Hockey League team in Baltimore and not an East Coast Hockey League team, according to Councilman Joseph J. DiBlasi.That represents a reversal of DiBlasi's previous position. Since writing the resolution, which contains no mention of the AHL, DiBlasi had said the pledges were for the retention of a professional hockey team in Baltimore.
