From a reliable source: They say the deal has become "dead" from ...1) small seating capacity of the Aud and, 2) the state money needed for the upgrades to the building just isn't there.

Just from an actual "build-out" perspective, this seems like a real long-shot in 6 months for the next season regardless...

Oh well, fun while it lasted! And by the way I won't be replying back to this post...I trust my source so I'll let you 24/7 Topix people hash out the comments and bashing.

Cheers!

Yeah I actually head the same thing from more than a few people in the Lake Placid area last wkd (during final 4 tourny). I thought it was a bit overboard from the beginning but wanted to at least play out. Thanks for info!

I would hope to have a team someday. Driving to Albany or Cuse just isn't the same. With so much work and $$$ to come up with in just 6 months though has me thinking you're correct on this.

Thanks for the update BTW!

More empty hype from our leaders. Don't hold your breath people, Utica will never be anything other than an empty ghost town.

I really hope that a team is on the way here, but of course with hope there are always doubts. Especially around here...if this is happening are they still looking at the end of the week for an announcement? If this is not true is anyone going to tell us so we can stop getting our hopes up...i hope someone has a truthful response.

I'm not really how many times I've been saying this on these boards since February 24. It's. absolutely true and the team is coming.

Sounds cool. I'm actually very much looking forward to being there for the first game. This is a score for utica and such a positive step moving forward. I never in my lifetime imagined a sports team of such talent would return to that area. When the devils left I was convinced it was over. Utica will be very happy this weekend I have a feeling.

I'm self- employed and will be buying 2 season tix from the ahl team and maybe 2 from the Utica Pioneers college team. And maybe some advertising in the game program. Don't let the naysayers get to u ! See u at the games.

If money wasn't the problem we would have had an official announcement by now. Money is definitely the problem.
