its called checking out and knowing your options mr. no common sense....... they still do not know if the canucks are even leaving or if the ahl will approve a team in abbotsford. like was said before the ahl is coming back to a smaller footprint and less travel.<quoted text>
Who says they "want" to go to utica? Would the assistant general manager of the flames be given a tour of the arena by the EDC warren county president if they want to be in Utica? See you in June.
They may end up in glens falls if the canucks stay put in utica. they may end up flip flopping cities. you do know that vancouver is a proffesionally run franchise, it wouldnt look to good for their reputation to sign a six year lease and leave after one year. again no common sense.
also for some weird reason you just seem to think this owner got rich blowing money on stupid stuff like your proposing, hes a businessman. it all comes down to $$$$$ and if abbotsford isnt going to give a deal to the canucks that the flames got, it wont work.
there are alot of things that have to fall in place, but with the support in utica, even vancouver fans have said there is no hurry to move the baby canucks.
lets face it, even with the city of abbotsford coughing up a million plus bucks a year, the flames are not happy. so how will the canucks make it work if the have to foot the entire bill ???
