When Mike Caggiano took over ownership of the Bandits a couple of months ago, the wolves weren't at the door, they were already sniffing around in the living room, the kitchen and everywhere else in the house.Here's a partial list of the people who were upset with the hockey team: suppliers, media, players, coaches and the parent club, the Anaheim Mighty Ducks."The most immediate thing we had to work on was our lack of credibility," recalled Caggiano, credibility in this case meaning the Bandits had taken on the annoying habit of failing to pay their bills.

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."

When the Baltimore Bandits took the Arena ice for the first time as an American Hockey League franchise Saturday, there was a highly appreciative crowd of nearly 5,000 responding to their every move . . . . even to the penalty box. It was an exhibition game.The last time the city was a member of the AHL, as the Baltimore Skipjacks in 1992-93, regular-season games drew an average of 3,000 fans. The previous 10 years of their existence, the Jacks had averaged 3,375 per contest, which usually placed them about eighth in attendance in the 13-14-15-team league.

Baltimore is not exactly a hockey hotbed.In 1993, the American Hockey League's Baltimore Skipjacks moved to Portland, Maine, and the city responded by seemingly shrugging its shoulders.You could drive from Ocean City to Hagerstown in winter and barely see a frozen puddle, much less a frozen pond suitable for skating. The average Baltimorean might identify a Zamboni with Italian cuisine, not a machine that resurfaces the ice between periods of a hockey game.Yet, Bob Teck and Alan Gertner, majority owners of the Bandits, Baltimore's latest entry into the AHL, have invested millions of dollars and thousands of hours into making hockey a success here.
