Now that the Tropicana's ownership issues appear to be solved (zillionaire Carl Ican has been awarded the beleaguered--but potential-filled property), rumors are starting to emerge about who will be handed the keys once new management is in place.

Changes coming to top of Trop?

Now that the Tropicana's ownership issues appear to be solved (zillionaire Carl Icahn has been awarded the beleaguered--but potential-filled operation), rumors are starting to emerge about who will be handed the keys once new ownership is in place.

We hear that a former top-tier AyCee exec, who most recently ran a $2 billion-dollar-plus playpen half-way around the world, was recently seen at the Trop. If true, that augers well for the casino-hotel complex, which --with the infusion of capital, stability and elbow grease--could become one of the town's dominant properties. The suit in question definitely innovated during his last term in Atlantic City.
