You truly are lost. The building is and has been for sale.

<quoted text> well them flames have all but committed to glens falls according to several news sources. The flames are stating that the main reason that they left abbotsford was the enormous amount of travel and lost practice times. The flames have decided to put player development ahead of what they were raping the city of abbotsford for. Vancouver has already committed to two more seasons in utica, so both cities are all set for now!!!!!
The flames didn't leave abbottsford. They were bought out. Get your facts straight.

No one will waste the time putting a team on the Pacific coast. The traveling expenses are too high and there are absolutely no arenas in the area that host AHL games.

The Comets are staying here and hopefully they will bring back the Empire Division so us New York hockey fans can get these local rivalries a little hotter.

Go Comets! Forget the Cuse haters. Just jelly that we're gonna be stomping them for years to come.

<quoted text>. Your knit picking now..... The flames left because it decided to leave. Or don't you remember that any changes to the contract had to be mutually agreed upon. The only left after they got what they wanted, which was millions.......the flames could have stayed and forced abbotsford to fulfill the legal and binding contract. They decided player development for calgary was more important than $$$$$. Which is also the reason why the canucks will stay with utica. The nhl is a development league, its about giving your players the best chance to succeed.not about a wacko owner making money.....
It's not knit picking. It's the facts. And it's ALWAYS about the owners making money. ALWAYS.

Should I keep going? And to think vancouver is going to be left out, or opt out, being easily the most popular team on the west coast is highly naive.

So come June and even you have to admit that the Comets will be back next season as the farm team for Vancouver will you go away or are you just going to change your story that 2014-15 will be the last season for the Comets?

You won't need to wait until June anyway because the AHL board of governors meets this Monday to approve and location changes. This must be declared at the May AHL meeting. Last year Vancouver was given a one month extension because they announced they were leaving Chicago and hadn't signed a new contract anywhere else yet. If a team is moving this year they need to announce it and have the AHL approve it on Monday.

BTW the Comets are looking for summer interns so that really sounds like a team that is closing shop in a week. Maybe you should apply. They are non paid internships but it give you something more productive to do instead of sitting on Topix all day.

lets see...... abbotsford vrs central ny state for a ahl team. reports say glens falls spent a total of 17 nights in hotels last season. most ny teams would be about the same. abbotsford spent 80 nights in hotels, plus they need to fly almost everywhere, and they have to pay the opponents travel into and back from abbotsford. and you for some reason think the canucks are going to put a team in abbotsford???? wow!!! you are out there.........

Umm...well someone already has. That's beside the point though.

The Canucks want their team closer to home as apparently up to 7 other west coast NHL teams. Aquillini want his team in his backyard. Aqulini wants to own the sports complex in abbottsford. The pacific division will be created next season. Abbottsford just spent over 5 million dollars to oust the flames. You do the math.

Please don't forget if anyone can find out if any of the players are gay males younger then 18.

I like hockey players because they can have teeth missing and with this rash on my face and a IQ of 8, no job, no life, I need a young man who is scary looking.
