Let's look at Calgary Flames AHL history:

In 2003 they were in New Foundland
In 2005 they were in Mass
In 2007 they were in Nebraska
In 2009 they were in Illinois

Today they are in British Columbia and supposedly in talks with a group from Utica NY discussing whether they should break their contract with their current city and move to Utica.

Does this sound like a perfect match for our city that currently enjoys a relationship with Utica College, the D-3 Hockey team that leads the nation in attendance, and currently in first place with the best overall record, and provides AFFORDABLE family entertainment?

Given the history of pro hockey in the MV, you should offer a rendition of 'Utica Up In Flames' for a logo.

I posted this in another thread but ill recap. My father has since passed but was involved with the ownership group of the stars/comets and then the eventual devils. When I first saw the blog post Sunday morning my first reaction was ok...they finally got some traction. As other sites started picking up the story I decided to call one of my dads ex business partners with hockey and best friends who is still involved with this stuff. He owns a fairly prominent business now in the utica area. Like I said before, i won't name names yet but he told me its already done and they were currently trying to figure out how the story was leaked. He also told me about the improvements that have already been done to the aud and the improvements that will be done this summer. Why won't I give his name yet? Quite frankly over the next month I don't want any of the loons here calling his business looking for info. After the deal is formally announced I will post his name.

If those improvements are being paid for by the franchise then I wish them all the best.

If they're being paid for with tax dollars, that's a different story.
