Congrats, Comets' fans, construction on "phase II" has begun... enjoy your new parking lot and new crappers for the upcoming season because it's looking like a swan-song.

The Comets are playing their second preseason game in...Abbotsford, B.C.! Testing the waters for a truly western conference in the AHL, eh?

Esche and DuRoss would like to thank you for lining their pockets. Its been a fun and profitable (for them) two-year adventure.

<quoted text>. Let's see how many things are wrong with that statement..... Abbotsford has no hockey team... The arena is losing money.. And for some reason ththeyre going to go through a weeks worth of work of To put ice down for one pre season game????? You are a complete imbecile........
There's other hockey events going on at that arena. Does your whole world revolve around ahl hockey or your experience at the aud?

Also - that would be right when training camp ends in Vancouver so why not do a gaame out that way before the team arrives in Utica. DUH

<quoted text> they did that last year. Played a pair of games in abbotsford. No big deal. Canucks are committed to utica for two more seasons. All bets are off after that!!!!
They are not committed for anything actually.

Yes, the AHL does not release its schedule until after the NBA does however, sites and tentative dates, such as preseason games and home openers, are already listed (see...well, any AHL team's website).

My main problem is this: http://www.budget.ny.gov/agencyGuide/pacb/052...

Dated May 21 of this year, this approves $3,490,000 for the Auditorium under the blanket term of "Payment of portion of
the cost of fašade work, construction and renovations to the Utica Memorial Auditorium" ... "of portion"? There is more tax money to come for a team that could easily leave after this year?!(Please don't give me the "they signed for six-years...it's iron-clad" argument because if you believe in iron-clad contracts, I have a bridge in NYC I'd like to sell you)

What facade work? A sign for carbone auto quantifies as "facade work"?

2 video screens, new crappers, and a fresh-coat of paint will keep the fans happy...while Chico and DuRoss fleece you guys dry with comets crap until the 'nucks pull out next year.
