All along he kept telling us "see you in June". Well he was right, the Comets made a announcement today. AHL game at the Dome.

Probably not the announcement Dave was anticipating.

Really?? That's what you brought...it'll set an AHL attendance mark of 50,000 fans so apparently a number of people care.

Well my estimate on the Canucks leaving seemed to be a year early. I'm still not convinced it won't happen this month but the writing is on the wall for next season. Even if the Canucks do stay this season...enjoy it...it will be the last when the ahl creates the pacific division.

Oh and....there won't be anywhere close to 50k at the dome for one thing. Second thing is it's minor league hockey...with hockey already being a second tier sport...so well...it's the minor leagues of that.

Meanwhile the supposed upgrades are not being done to the aud and it sits vacant. Awesome job Duross and esche.

How does that crow taste?? You spouted off for months that the Comets aren't leaving...better look for new sources before you make a fool out of yourself again.

As for 50k, you're correct there won't be. They're not putting the ice in the center of the Dome so there will only be seating for approx 30k. Still not too shabby.

I for one, along with many others are happy that the aud received the grant money. Call it what you may but everything that has been associated with the Comets/aud has positive.

Not eating any crow at all actually. Was I off by a year? Perhaps? Why hasn't the second phase of impostor men's been done to the aud? Why do the Canucks have an out after two years? Why is the ahl creating a pacific division for 2015? Those are the questions you need to remember. Enjoy the giant year if it even happens.

Yes that's eating crow...you were 100% wrong... 100%! As for 2015, you're completely guessing...again. You have absolutely zero basis for your claims.

Is the AHL looking to expand so the Canucks can move their AHL team out west? Again...no.

You coming to a game this year? Perhaps the dome game.

What other baseless facts are you going to shower us with?

Call it what you want. "Zero basis for my claims". Evidently you're not any good at using google are you?

And you are right. The ahl isn't going west for just the Canucks benefit. They are going out there for the benefit of all of the western teams. The echl is making a lot of money in markets the NHL parent teams want to be in. Do you honestly believe that the ahl would rather be in utica or glens falls versus tuscon or Seattle?

And no I won't be going to any minor league jockey games this year.

Again try google and start reading. Enjoy.

My gosh...I'm the one who can't use Google? Son everything you had "facts" about for the past 6 months has blown up in your face. When are you going to start your "see you in June 2015" thread?

Here's a bit of advice for you and I suggest you take it...not everything you read on the internet is true.

Oh really? Enjoy you're final season of comets hockey if it happens. Enjoy those magical suites (or suits) as uticans call them that aren't happening. Theres a reason they aren't happening.

Also enjoy the filled up aud this summer! Lol!,! Over 2.5 million spent for minor league hockey in dump hole utica and the archaic aud!! Isn't NYS great! Lol

Come to think of it, please tell me you had another avenue for your information than just some website. Please tell me you had some inside information. The way you spoke you sure did make it appear like you knew someone on the inside.

I do. And that's how I heard what was going on with utica last year. The flames talks were very much real. It didn't happen.

The Canucks needed a quick alternative after striking out in six other publicized places and settled on utica.

I believed the trigger would be pulled this season by aquilini. It appears not this year. But they do have the out after this season and I'm sure they will execute it especially once the ahl opens a pacific division.

It's just simply a matter of time now.

I don't care about minor league jockey. I do care about the waste of public taxpayer funds. If I cared about hockey I have two minor league teams in my backyard (glens falls and Albany) or two d1 college teams in rpi and union (defending national champs).

Yes I'm sure many will enjoy the games. Now please no more posts until you have concrete evidence.

If you're so concerned about a waste of taxpayer money, then why do you pick on CNY so much? You should know that you're neck of the woods receives a disproportionally amount of pork spending than CNY.

CNY has been ignored by Albany politicians for years. One grant comes through and you make it your personal cause to slam the entire area and all of it's residents because of it.

Explain the logic.

The "out" is after four years. Three years from now. You're on the wrong side of the six years.

CNY is ignored for a reason.
