Well, your guess doesn't mean shyt around here anymore. No "big announcement" necessary. If there was AHL hockey coming here the media would be all over it.
Actually they wouldn't. Consider how quick the one blog post was removed? If there was any hint that the ownership group needed or wanted attention brought to this they would splatter themselves all over the news daily going "updates" or asking for support. It's already a done deal. Enjoy the team this fall!

What's funny is when the team is announced how do you manipulate your way out of statements like this you made.

At least the Easter bunny is real. We can see the Easter bunny.
Has anyone seen a new hockey team? No. Has the media covered a new hockey team? No.
C'mon folks. Do you believe your eyes or "Utica 34"?

Personally I don't care who believes me. Utica isn't just mentioned in all of these articles for no reason.

Actually they wouldn't want too much out there for the public to see because they are depending heavily on the taxpayer funding aspect of this. If they were doing it on their own they'd be shouting it from the mountaintops. They are smart enough to know that in these economic times, funding a hockey team is a hard sell. It would be harder if taxpayers were bending their legislators ears about how foolish it owuld be to kick in taxpayer money. I still think the only local politician clueless enough to push for this is Brindisi amd my prediction is that if there is a proposal it will be him who pushes it.

My guess is that this has everything to do with them trying to keep this quiet. Now that the NYS budget has passed, like Nancy Pelosi said about Obamacare: we'll get to see what is in there. We already know that funding for children with disabilities has been cut and taxpayers are funding the increase in the minimum wage so I think AUD upgrades to accomodate an AHL team with a history of taking what it can get from the taxpayers and moving on is a pretty stupid move and everyone should realize that.

Yeah it would be nice but would you install a pool in your back yard if your roof was leaking?

Every article either quotes the original OD blog entry that was pulled, contains complete denials from all parties involved or says that very peliminary talks have happened. There is no article that even comes close to saying a deal is done.

Google : "Utica AHL hockey" or some other relevent search and read everything. You'll find that most if not all are long on speculation and short of cold, hard facts.

Does anyone with the exception of the poster called Utica34(among other things) say that this is a done deal? Is there any evidence that the upgrades to teh AUD have been authorized or funded? If someone can produce that evidence then this conversation is over.

If it is a DONE DEAL then why are the owners keeping it quiet. You'd think they would be proud of it and want everyone to know. As of now,
You are the only one who knows.
