So true. Even when the writing is on the wall they will still bury their heads in the sand. Pretty much why they are in the position they are...head down and azz up getting taken by someone. The ignorance level is ridiculous. I hope they enjoy the team while they can.

<quoted text>. Wow. You may want to inform all those flames and oilers fans that they worship the canucks. I'm sure it will come as a complete shock to them. And when you figure in the fact that dome of the greatest hockey players ever played for the oilers, it makes your statement look even more assanine. Then there's the matter that vancouver has never won a cup, the oilers have 5 and the flames won one. I'm sure all of west of Toronto worships a team that has never won anything!!
It's a fact that the Canucks are the second most popular team in Canada behind the leafs. Try doing some reading.

<quoted text> I would say the owner better worry about that mess of an overpaid ageing team in vancouver instead of over saturating his market. If the canucks move their farm team to abbotsford, it won't last. Too much travel as other teams have found out, and the novelty will west off after a season or two. And from what I can tell with all the black paint going up at the auditorium it already looks like the flames are coming. I was told they wanted to come to utica last fall but couldn't get out of the contract. The travel is killing that team.
You don't realize how big the Canucks are simply for the fact you not only live on the east coast but Uticans typically live in their own little bubble.

You do realize the Canucks owner would not only be located the team HE purchased there but he would be purchasing the building in abbottsford to host HIS team...a building the city of abbottsford needs to sell. He is extremely egotistical and will get what he wants. He's also pursuing another nba franchise to go with his hockey teams.

The Canucks will not be in Utica next season.

You couldn't be more wrong? What work to the aud? Locker rooms and two video boards? A fresh coat of paint? Every sports contract can be broken at anytime. Just ask Baltimore when the colts picked up and left in the middle of the night for Indianapolis but keep living in your bubble. The Canucks will not be in Utica next season.

<quoted text> actually the whole deal is 6 yrs. So they have 5 yrs left. Attendance is not Vancouver's issue. The comets Pay vancouver a set amount and it's up to the comets to recoup their money from ticket sales, advertising etc. There is a escape clause but it would cost the canucks a lot of money in penalties. Abbotsford had its chance last summer and the canucks were not too happy with negotiations. They will end up abbotsford at some point. But they won't go broke going in there.this loser thinks he's just going to spend millions to put a nhl team in abbotsford when the parent team is in shambles. All good businesses men know good things take time.that's how they make their money.....
The parent team in shambles? Their average attendance is OVER CAPACITY! In merchandise sales they are the highest for ALL Canadian teams including even the leafs and Canadians. What planet do you live on? The Canucks WILL ABSOLUTELY not be in Utica next season.

Oh, the hits keep coming, dolt. Just in case you wanted to weasel your way out of the previous two links and whine about "just restricting it to Canada," here's another reference neanderthal:

http://www.macleans.ca/society/for-canadians-...

Here's an excerpt, dunce cap:

"Among fans of the game, almost a quarter of the country, 24 per cent, name the Leafs their favourite team, followed by the Habs, with 21 per cent of the votes, and the Canucks, at 18 per cent. The Oilers, rounding out the list, come in with 13 per cent of votes."

Exactly how stupid are you re tard? Seriously. You can pull up all of these ridiculous site polls and opinions you want and it doesn't change the facts. Look at the REVENUE the Canucks generate fuckt ard. Money talks and always remember that. I realize that's a hard concept for the average Utican to understand because if the limited funds there but it's reality. Try again jerky. Man you are so ignorant.
Angry much, imbecile? Listen, dud, you do this all the time to bolster your constant negative drumbeat. Just remember the next time you drop a link to prove your point, dullard, like that Tomato Pie one from wikipedia!

Well this thread has turned into another disaster.

I've had the unfortunate pleasure of meeting a couple other people like them. They are book smart but when it comes to common sense, forget it it cause they have absolutely no common sense. There way is the only way and its always the wrong way. People talk about them behind their back and they are completely oblivious to all of it. Absolutely hilarious!! And this loose nut spends hours on end on topix trying to show everyone how much knowledge he possess. Unfortanatly we know your an idiot too........
His name is Dave Smith. He is exactly as you describe. He is also a pos. His father was into local hockey before his unfortunate and untimely demise, so his inept and under performing youngest son Dave thinks he's a chip off the old block. Not! He is no insider and just a pestering failed and disappointing son of a good guy who did know his hockey. Very sad really.

You all need to understand I am on welfare, I live here on Utica topix because where I live is so low income and I am in the same class that all I ca do is run my mouth here. I was fired from waxing cars, so now thanks to obama I can sit all day an post here, no one in my town can't afford a cell phone or PC so our topix is dead. Someday I will again wax cars and be able to get out of the house using the city bus, soon I hope.

Sorry Brent, my family has some mental problems from the rash we have.

If that were the case abbotsford would know this and come to utica dumb asses. They would not pick glens falls over utica. Believe it or not utica is actually the sweathart deal. They only have to draw 2400 to break even. Abbotsford actually wanted utica first and what has happened so far is double what people expected utica fans would do. After this weekend it will be over 3400 per year. That article actually proves vancouver isnstaying because abbotsford would not be looking at glens falls

Nope, sorry buffoon, in a previous post, you called me re tard, fuckt ard, jerky, and ignorant. Effin' with you is like shooting fish in a barrel. When someone employs the same tactics that you've been spewing to show you're talking out of your azz, you blow up like a pufferfish. Move on to another hate-filled post fuckt ard, you're outnumbered. And, come June, if we're right, I'm going to track you down like the dog that you are and buy you a coffee.

And in the meantime, suck on this with your popular, revenue-filled hallucination:

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm...

Here's a few more excerpts jerky:

Canada's oldest hockey team is also this country's most revered, according to a new poll released Monday in celebration of the Montreal Canadiens' 100th anniversary.

A third of respondents named the Habs when asked to identify 'Canada's team,' compared with a quarter who said the same for their archrival Toronto Maple Leafs.

Twenty-eight per said no franchise could claim to be Canada's team. As for the country's other squads, they were also-rans in the hypothetical contest: the Ottawa Senators, Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers garnered two-to five-per-cent support apiece.

And, one more juicy tidbit eff-face:

Of the 1,015 Canadians surveyed, just under half called the Habs the greatest hockey team in history, while two-thirds agreed the Montreal Canadiens are to hockey what the New York Yankees are to baseball.
