Don't say you weren't warned. The rumors have started. You will be in a dogfight with glens falls over the flames affiliation. The Canucks will not be in Utica next season. Good luck. Lol!!!

Selling future season tickets is smart to try and secure another affiliation actually. It happened in Peoria last year. See you in June! Lol!!!!

Nothing here implies we may lose the Comets!!!!!!!!

The article in the GLENS FALL PAPER says Calgary Flames officials looked at the Glens Falls arena as a new home for the team in Abbotsford, which has the lowest attendance in the AHL. The Glens Falls team is moving to Allentown, PA.

Here is the url:

The article in the Canadian paper says the move from western Canada to Glens Falls makes sense: "The proximity to other teams cuts costs immensely and also gives players more time on the ice, as opposed to a bus." So the Flames want their farm team closer to all the teams in the East, which includes Utica.

We out drew Adirondak this year. They counted a game they sold out in Philadelphia with their ahl attendance whichbadded 16,000. We still would get a team. The smaller arenas are the new trend in the ahl. It was stated by an Adirondak player that recently played here that utica makes glens falls look like a joke

this better be a joke or the Comets are going to lose my loyalty re renewal on tickets. I support their effort not the investors who move on.

They are not going anywhere. When the comets played in abbotsford last weekend they had 3500 and that was with both fan bases. The cost of that building compered to the aud is tripple

The writing was on the wall last year. Just like everyone doubted me last year...but the flames played hardball...well they can't any longer...the Canucks owner will get his way. The Canucks will not be in Utica next season. Mark my words.

Bye bye abbotsford more like it pal. Their brand new arena will be used for a circus and monster trucks during hockey season. You cant have a team that far west. I know your trying to rev up comets fans but were not that dum. If the canucks are that stupid i know we will get a team. Even the devils would be better off here. If the rangers came they would sell 2500 season tickets alone

You truly are ignorant of what the Canucks owner wants. He tried in abbottsford. Didn't work at the time. He then tried to put the team in Vancouver but the flames used the fifty mile rule. He then tried in Seattle but Seattle is in the nhls radar. He then tried to just keep the team in Peoria. Just from documented and published reports utica was the fifth choice. Who knows how many others were explored that wasn't published? The Canucks do not and will not be in Utica next season.

Thank you for proving my point. Calgary is already selling the idea to its fans. The Canucks owner has his own agenda which is evident based on the actions last year. The flames will be in glens falls next season and the Canucks will be in abbottsford. Mark my words.

Stirring the pot? You obviously don't know how to work the google search feature. I'm certainly not the person planting these articles but if Uticans want to take the ostrich approach like they typically do feel free. Evidently you haven't seen the video between the Canucks owner and the abbottsford mayor I take it.
