<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.

The Comets will be back next season. The Comets logo will look just as good in red and black as it does in blue an green.

Talked to comets higher ups last night. There's a couple other things going on. First of all is all ahl team movements have to be approved by the board of governors. And at this point the feeling in the ahl is that abbotsford simply is not working out. Too much travel being out there alone. So one of two scenarios are most likely to play out. The first is the flames and canucks switch ahl cities, the second is that the heat move to glens falls and then the canucks stay in utica, as the board of governors will not have enough votes to approve a team moving to abbotsford unless they have another city close to them. Much like Texas, San Antonio and okc. Its widley known that the oilers will be leaving okc after next season and the league wants less travel. In a couple years the ahl should be a eastern and mid West based league.
thats why i said nothing will change in abbotsford. flames want out, too much travel. vancouver wants in, but the ahl will not approve it.without a sister city. abbotsford either keeps the flames or will have to replace the flames with a team from another league. i dont see anything changing. the ahl is stuck with abbotsford for another 5 years.

Yeah, it's happening. I like how I get called every name in the book for just pointing out the facts of what's going on. Season ticket sales are a non factor. I mean didn't have season ticket sales last year and Peoria did and still look what happened. Attendance is typically a non factor for the parent club. It's not a money making venture for them.
you get called every name in the book, because you have no common sence. its not just the owners wants and needs that decides things in the world. the ahl has a say too, and they have to approve everything. they approved of the move from peoria to utica. you sound like a spoiled brat who thinks vancouvers owner can buy and get whatever he wants.

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.
The Devils were successful here? LMAO!! By what standards MORON!!

You forgot to mention his incomplete sentence, "Means nothing". You are dealing with Rashy Dave Smith. He is a pos know nothing who thinks he's a hockey insider because his dad was. I know for a fact that ALL the local hockey movers consider Dave nothing more than a f'ing obnoxious groupie not worth a pimple on his dad's azzz. They won't take his calls anymore despite their affection for his late father. Very sad really.

im pretty comfortable saying that the flames will be here next season. the comets last night showed a small video clip on Craig Conroy and introduced him to the crowd. no reason do do something like that unless they are going to be here next season. the flames wanted to come last year but could not get out of their contract.

Playing minor league hockey in Utica must be like serving time in prison...which is kind of fitting. Lol!
Rashy Dave played hockey as a kid but according to him he peaked at 10 years old. That was another disappointment for his dad, not because Dave was below average, but because his son blamed everybody but himself for his own poor work ethic on the ice. Very sad, but true.

You notice how Rashy Dave keeps changing his positions? It's because he's a know nothing loser. Why do you people bother with this moron? The only reason he started this thread was to see how many posts would rack up. His name is Dave Smith and he is an internet troll.
