You will be in a dogfight for the flames affiliation. Like I've said before mark it down and check back in June.
the flames contract has 5 more years on it with abbotsford, and they are not about to walk away from that cash cow. ad the fact that vancouver is the flames 2nd biggest rivalry and they are not about to do anything to help the canucks. your beating a dead horse.... live with it........ the comets staff and fans have far eceeded anyones expectations...

I don't pick and choose anything. You make blanket statements with zero facts. My expectations have not been met. You said they are performing above everyone's expectations. Unless you have polled everyone stay away from statements like that. Also, I hope the best for the comets in a search for a new affiliate next season. Mark my words, it won't be the Canucks.
You ain't too bright Nono!

Much to the apparent delight of Cow Riggies, the Comets may very well be gone in June. A powerful and rich businessman like Aquilini will eventually get his way and put his farm team wherever the hell he wants. However, he's going to have a busy offseason this year and may not get to it this June. His Canucks are a disaster right now and when they miss the playoffs, he's going to need a new GM, coach, and half a roster.

I'm for sure a big fan of the Comets and the AHL being here in Utica, but if Vancouver does plan on moving their team to Abbotsford it does look like it's going to come down to a battle between us and Glens Falls for the Flames farm club. And has anyone else noticed that the Comets haven't started season ticket renewals yet? Hope I'm just being paranoid, but it doesn't look good...

They did that last year as well and it still didn't stop them from pursuing the heat.
If by "they," you mean the Canucks, then yes, you're right, they did get a new coach last year. However, the GM was the same as was most of the roster. There are major problems this year in Vancouver and just saying they may have bigger fish to fry this offseason. Still may not make a difference though...

There is a buyout option. It's not a lot of money at all. The owner of the Canucks is an extremely rich narcissist. He wants his team close to his other team. What people forget is he tried to put his team in abbottsford. He then tried in vancouver but the heat used the 50 mile rule. He then tried in peoria. He then tried in Seattle but since they are on the NHLs map that became a no go. Those are only the published reports so who knows where else he tried before settling on utica. And let's not forget, he settled on utica. The Canucks will not be uticas affiliate next season. I wouldn't be surprised if he even moves it to Seattle since the phoenix situation got cleared up. You guys need to remember this is a guy also pursuing another nba franchise hard for vancouver. He wants it all and he wants it in his backyard. See you in June.
100% agree Cower Rigor-Mortis, and you're probably right. However, Aquilini may have to start worrying about filling up his 18,630 seat Rogers Center before his 7,046 seat Pleasure Palace in Abbotsford. Check out the photos in this link again of the empty seats, because, as you well know, "pictures don't lie." See you in June - either way…

Oh but wait Einstein. Vancouver is 4th in attendance this year at look at that percent of capacity number. Those seem to be what comet people keep bringing up. You can't have it both ways buddy.
Nicely played, Shawspank - link for link. Although it took you an extra post to find it. Anyway, the photos I referenced are from last night's game after the Islanders put up a touchdown and extra point in the third period. Clearly this is the first time fans left after 400 some odd sellouts in a row - so you are right again! Point is, Vancouver is a sophisticated town and love their hockey. Something bad is brewing there right now, and maybe the Aquilini Investment Group is going to have to start answering to their fans. Maybe they don't get around to the Abbotsford situation. Probably not, but then again I did say you were probably right.

Staged pictures still don't lie. See you in June either way...

Considering there is a waiting line for season tickets and they average over capacity I think they are just fine. Also considering that aquillinis plan is to require ticket packages for the minor league team be purchased for all season ticket holders of Canucks games is brilliant. You uticans get lost on the small details and miss the big picture. Abbottsford is Canucks territory and he'll have that abbottsford arena sold out in no time.
Another fine point, Nene Utica. No reference, but I believe you. Uncle. For someone that actually agrees with you, you sure keep plugging to drive those points home. Got to admire that.

See you in June, either way…

Really. See. You. In. June. Five posts is enough.

If you're right, I will come back in June and say what I've said all along - that you are probably right - just without the probably. If I'm right, I'm not coming back to gloat. Five is enough. But, could you do me one favor?

I really want to visit this thread again in June, but I don't want to read all the posts. Could you just give me statistics on how many vitriolic posts you make between now and then?

I'm going to need number of posts, number of aliases, word counts, character counts, and overall time spent on said posts. Oh yeah, and for aliases, can you categorize them as clever and not-so-clever? I really like "Utica Marsh Riggies," that's a damn good one. What stoopid Utican would think Riggies were so good if they were made with swamp water? You're killing me! And then you bring in the marsh reference - brilliant! But "Aud Riggies," really? That's too much of a good thing. How about "Uterine's Bilked by Aud?" A really good one if the Comets pack up like the Indianapolis Colts in the middle of the night is, "Aud Man Out - Comets in Abbotsford." Wow, we'd never see that one coming!
