I know there's a lot of bs on these boards but this isn't. If you remember when utica got the Mohawk Valley Stars of the now defunct ACHL...well my father was one of the investors. Hes passed now but using his connections and speaking with them they are 100% confirming the rumor as true. They are currently trying to seek out how the information was leaked this early. I swear on my dads grave this info is true. I can't name names right now but I will tell you that once its formally announced I will update this thread with my sources. He is a prominent business man in utica and many of you will definitely recognize his name.

Congratulations Utica! I'm SO happy for you. I never thought once the Devils left that Utica would ever see this quality of hockey again but you are. I know my dad is smiling somewhere right now.

you are talking about duross. Him and Clark are good businessmen but when are they going to realize that PRO TEAMS DON'T WORK HERE!!!!!! Granted, the area near the Aud has improved greatly since the housing was torn down and many ppl wouldnt go bc of the housing, I still don't think it will work. Ppl like going to the uc games bc they are cheap and the house is nearly full. Why ruin a good thing by throwing an AHL team in the mix.

My source was not frank. I can't name them now but when it's formal I'll post the name here. If you are familiar with local hockey you'll know him. It is done.

Hey Frank,
Pro hockey didn't work in Providence either. Who changed that? Oh yeah, Frank DuRoss. The man who will run the day to day operations of the team but will NOT, be the owner.

All rumors. These "INVESTORS" are looking for public monies. Where will that come from, Mr. AHL?

It's done. No one will formally commit until the announcement. Pretty standard stuff.

Standard stuff. They are expecting public monies to improve facility. Who is going to give them money? Palmieri?

It's all done. Check back towards the end of next month and stayed tuned during that time as this further develops towards the inevitable announcement.

the article doesn't say where the money is coming from to update the Aud. i can't see the owners putting in the money to update the building, and waiting for state grants could take years.
