The Quesnel Millionaires have not left town yet although a source said the possibility does exist.
The Mills had until today to advise the British Columbia Hockey League of their intentions for the team next season, but the league has given local owners time to consider a few options.
Speculation was the Mills would move to Chilliwack to fill the space left by the move of the WHL Chilliwack Bruins to Victoria, but the source said there was no offer to move the Mills to Chilliwack.
Among the options are an offer from a group who want to move the Mills to Wenatchie, Washington, east of Seattle.
A second new offer could also see the team move. However, failing that, the potential owners have said they would keep the Mills in Quesnel for at least a year to see if there are developments in the proposed Multi-Centre project.
