Don't let the line: "...four of the years are believed to be guaranteed..." fool you. Buying that contract out will be a drop in the bucket IF the Canucks so wish (and it looks like they are planning on bringing their AHL franchise to the Fraser Valley, not the Mohawk Valley).

You might want to try reading the article that you posted. In case you missed it here are some of the important parts.

"Glens Falls is a two-hour drive east of Utica in upstate New York.

A Canucks’ official told The Province that the club has no immediate plans to move to Abbotsford.

The NHL team may consider looking into Abbotsford down the road, the official said, but the Canucks have five years left on their contract with Utica, four of which are believed to be guaranteed."

"There are several drawbacks to having a farm club in the Fraser Valley, so far away from most of the other teams in the AHL. The Heat, for instance, spent more than 80 nights in cheap hotels after milk-run, economy-class flights and late-night bus rides this season; the Utica Comets spent about half as many nights away from home. That extra travel takes away from practice time, which doesn’t make sense for a developmental team."

Define for me "immediate". Not until the end of the season? Not until June?

If I remember correctly, the Canucks' assured Peoria with those same lies, err, I mean lines last year. Face the reality that the Comets will have no AHL affiliation come next season. Too bad.

The funny thing is no matter what they say tomorrow the end result will be the same. The Canucks will not be in Utica next season.

Hope the best for them to get the flames affiliation for next season but it doesn't look good. Glens falls has a much more impressive facility than Utica.

And people wonder why all that super duper mega construction for the so called "suites" hasn't even been bid out yet.

yea thats why the stadium journey rep voted the aud 10 slots ahead of glen falls. The aud was number 6 idiot. The flames wanted utica so obviously the Canucks are not leaving. And don't be fooled by their attendance over utica. They held two games in nhl arenas which counted towards their glens falls attendance. It added like 30 k.

How does Vancouver get out of the contract with Utica?

There have been over $7 million in government grants given to get the Comets here and up and running. Don't you think they got some guarantees from Vancouver that would keep them here at least until people forgot about that?

The suites haven't been bid yet because they don't have the money to build them. As soon as Brindisi, Griffo and Picente figure out where to get more money to give them it'll be full steam ahead.

Are you the same guy who swore last year that the Flames were coming to Utica?

Apparently this is the place, between the rumor above and rashy dave's nonsense, to post exaggerated hockey claims as if the poster is "in the know."

So, in the spirit of that, what the hell:

ISLANDERS are breaking their new lease with Queens County/Brooklyn and MOVING TO ALBANY! CAPITAL DISTRICT ISLANDERS RE-BORN IN THE NHL!
