Two or three things will need to happen in order for vancouver to move. First abbotsford needs to buy out the remaining five years of the contract with the flames. Its already known that any changes to the contract have to be mutually agreed upon. So basically the flames have abbotsford by the but sack. Second is Vancouver would need to buy out the remaining 5 years of its contract with utica. Third, vancouver then needs to cut a deal with abbotsford along the setup that the flames have in place, and that is never going to happen. The only way I see any of this working is for vancouver and the flames to simply switch ahl cities and the each fulfill the remainder of the contracts. This way, vancouver gets out of utica without paying a buyout and into abbotsford with the guaranteed break even. Calgary will get a east cost home with a rabid fan base, limited travel and development of players will improve. And abbotsford will have no choice to agree or they can continue to pay millions to the flames or hope the canucks draw well and save the city money. Anyway you look at it abbotsford is still the loser. Utica will waive the buyout as long as someone fulfills the remaining 5 yrs of the contract

Rashy Dave Smith talks like the insider his dad was above. He, however, is not an insider and is reviled by ALL local investors who laugh at him behind his back. Very sad.

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.
I was going to write the same thing...he calls everyone a ret***, in nearly every thread, but yet if you resort to something he interprets as name calling he pulls out the "typical Utican response..." post.

My gosh his act has worn so thin...it's not even comical anymore...pretty sad actually. I almost feel sorry for the guy...almost.(And don't come back with "I feel sorry for you, you live in Utica" schtick. Btw...I don't live in Utica...never have.

Maybe because the team owners know more than you do...is it possible?? Then again, you've probably Googled it and we all know thy everything you read in the internet is true.

Just giving people the facts. That's all.
Also feel free to not read my posts. It's a free country.
What does that even mean?? Have you not shaken off the hangover yet? Facts about what?

How can we ignore your posts?? They're on just about every thread on Topix. I mean seriously man, what do you do all day. I guarantee if I log back on 6 hours from now you'll still be posting....guaranteed. Why are you so obsessed with Utica? More precisely the Comets?? Did you get cut from your Bantam team and now you're holding a lifelong grudge?

Go ahead post away...I'm sure you're logged on for the better part of the day.

Speaking of google. Have you seen the video from November where aquilini exits a suite with the mayor of abbotsford and someone asks him when the Canucks will be moving to abbottsford? Aquilini looks at the mayor...and says ask him. The mayor just smiles.
Again above, rashy Dave Smith thinks he knows something because his dad was a local hockey supporter and mover. His youngest son Dave, is no chip off the old block and is a joke with ALL the local hockey insiders....even the old timers that remember and respected his father are worn weary of this pestering loser. Very sad.

For the same reason they sold season ticket renewals in Peoria last season. And for worry, there's ZERO shot of me ever moving there. ZERO.
Good I was worried. PA does have great sports teams. They won the superbowl in 200??? and again in 20???.

And in typical Dave fashion (like my play on words) you don't have a response for my posts. You never do because I always put you in your place.

Enough already with your pictures argument. We all know there's a difference between announced and actual attendance. We get it. Tonight's another sellout and while there probably won't be 3815 ppl there, there is usually about 3500. About 3x the number you were predicting last fall. Your original prediction blew up in your face so now you resort to the pics and videos angle. Why don't you check out a game in person and then tell us what you see.

The answer is simple....Rashy Dave can't afford a ticket.

I am on welfare, how do you expect me to buy a ticket when I need to sell my EBT cards for rash cream, plus I will never leave my Utica topix screen, my life is Utica topix because my ghetto has nothing to do an I am afraid to walk outside unless my life partner Gus is with me. All I know how to do in life is wax a car and live for utica topix, I can't do anything in life but these two things.

Mom an Dad both have lived on welfare so I come from a long line of welfare and public housing life.

Canucks will be in abbottsford next season and the flames in glens falls. You people can ignore all the facts you want. Aquilini didn't go out and buy an ahl franchise to stick in Utica. Do you know that his real estate group is in talks to purchase the arena in abbotsford from the city? Bet you didn't know that. Now why would he want that building just to house the flames affiliate.
Come on people, take off your Utican blinders.
I think you could be right. funny how they have really been trying to sell out the game against the Heat (more so then any other team). they have facebook posts showing what seats are left (never did that before for any other game) they are putting ALOT more effort then they normally do, are they trying to impress the Heat's ownership ? so they will choose Utica over Glens Falls next year? along with already selling Season tickets for next year so they can show the Heat Look we already have X amount of season tickets sold?

Quote :Like I posted before the deal is done and the funding set. I can not name names at this point but I did promise to by at the latest April 1st.
What gets kind of lost is the devils were successful here. The reason they left was quite simple. The devils moved the affiliation to Albany because of the deal they were given for the new knickerbocker arena (opened in 1990). The utica franchise was bought and moved to a location the flames thought would work better for them. That was their right. There was also a move at the time in the ahl for teams in larger markets like the Ihl was doing. The ahl is the feeder league to the NHL and bigger markets don't want feeder teams...teams that no matter how well the team is playing the parent club always comes first. Utica left, adirondack left, Binghamton left, hell even Rochester almost lost their team which was holy out there. That mindset has changed in the ahl.
The subsequent franchises failed after the devils for two main reasons. The owners were underfunded and they had a lot of negative sentiment towards those teams and those leagues. I very clearly remember hearing people complaining about how bad the hockey was, how they weren't going to go because its not the caliber of the devils, it all was just doomed to fail from what was previously here.
Attendances at UC games has done nothing but prove there is a passion for hockey in the area. The games will be affordable for the new team and it will be extremely professionally run by proven leaders. I'm anxious and wish the announcement dare would just..
------Now from the welfare car waxer after his vag was injured:
The deal was made that night. Mark my words. The Canucks will not be in Utica next season. See you in June. Lol!!!!
Injured failures who live on UTICA TOPIX with no life change faces in the GHETTO.
Great job digging up his own words from a year ago. Last year he claimed inside information that the Flames were coming to Utica and was singing Utica's praise every chance he got. Well history proved him wrong about the Flames and he never did divulge his source. Now a year later he claims the Canucks are leaving after one season and hates everything Utica. Sounds like a delusional bipolar loser who stopped taking his meds if you ask me.

First of all no one from the flames toured utica last week. Secondly you can express your opinion about Utica "blowing away most other cities..." Because that's your opinion. It's as worthless as mine. I am just laying out the facts here.
Maybe not, but someone from the Flames toured Utica this week. Craig Conroy, former Flame and US Olympian and current Special Assistant to the General Manager for the Calgary Flames was introduced to the crowd at Friday's game.

<quoted text> nice try Einstein. Attendance is definitely a factor if the parent team owns the ahl team. I also was told the flames want to be in utica. Remember the big buzz last year was all about calgary coming here. Craig Conroy was in utica yesterday to talk with utica officials.
Yup. Conroy and Esche were definitely having a good time in the booth at Friday's game. There were other "suits" in there that I hadn't seen before, and the mood was big time upbeat.
