Torrential floods in Calgary, Canada have devastated that city. The Saddledome, home of NHL hockey team The Flames, was flooded up to the 10th row of seating.

I guess this means the Flames will be looking for a new home and a new arena. This is Utica's chance to step up and court the displaced Flames and bring them to Utica.

Utica would make a great venue for an AHL hockey team. There are 5 colleges in the area (2 of them world-class), we are located at the foothills of the Adirondacks and we are home to the Boilermaker (the largest 5K road race in the country) and the National Distance Running Hall of Fame. We also have a vibrant arts and brewery district centered around and the Pratt-Munson Williams School or Art and the Saranac Matt brewing company. What is not to love about Utica? We have been dubbed the "Comeback City" and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees called us the "City that Loves Refugees." Affordability, opportunity and diversity make Utica an excellent choice.

Umm...what are the two world class colleges again? I assume one of them is Hamilton college which isn't in utica but is a very good small liberal arts school. And btw, no one outside of utica gives a sh it about the boilermaker. As far as the running hall of fame...well they currently don't have a home so I guess that speaks volumes about its importance. Also, no one outside of the utica region could really give a sh it Munson Williams or the brewery. You do realize that most regions have an art museum and run down breweries aren't really big attractions. Other than that, what else do you have?
