i think the nano tech and the improvements to parking and bathrooms will make a big difference in crowds at the aud. even i hate going when its a near sellout, there's no room to move in the building....if the comets get through this season then they should be ok if the improvements have the desired affect.... but then again, it is utica........anythings possible. the comets do play a more exciting game the the old school style the devils played. the building is better and the food is better.the atmosphere is better... the fans however remain the same.......

Mass army? How about ass farmie? So why does UC hockey suck? Because they don't fight? Because they have all their teeth? Or maybe because you're jealous of anyone (everyone) who is smarter than you are. They've shown that even as a D-3 team they can play with D-1 schools. And unless you're even more ignorant than you appear to be, D-1 players now make up a major portion of NHL rosters. In fact, 2 of the under 18 team members (who UC beat last week) are featured in Hockey News as cant't miss NHL prospects for next year. Stick to subjects you know about, like Keystone beer, double wides, generic cigarettes and morbidly obese girlfriends with tattoos. You wouldn't know good hockey if they stuffed the puck up your ass,

lets not turn this into a uc vrs comets disaster. uc has its place as cheap affordable hockey. its still division III hockey. they beat a under 18 team. that means a div III team of 18-19 and 20 yrs olds beat a team of 17 yr olds . that a huge age difference. and as far as the under 18 team beating a division I team. i seriously doubt the division I team played their top talent or were even "up" for the game.... on the other hand uc played all their top talent..... it dosnt mean anything. its one game. if uc played a Division I schedule they would get their butts kicked half the games. your not very realistic in your assessment of uc talent. yes they are good for a division I team, but thats it.

So, instead, you would prefer just bashing UC. The D-3 UC games are more exciting, better-attended, more competitive and will be much longer lasting than the Utica Comics.
The Comics are on their last leg; big crowd last night, and they will have some of those. We have already seen what most of their season's attendance will be like.
Go guzzle your swill at the game, and enjoy it while you can.
UC will be here for the long run.

<quoted text> there was no bashing in that post. Its just the facts. And I can tell you from attending both uc and comets games, that the ahl is a way more competitive league than the league uc is in. And as far as attendance, the comets are averaging over 3200. And I would expect that number to go up after the holidays. Both teams have a lot of no shows. And since the uc program is paid by uc its a no brained that it will be around a long time, thank you mister obvious. The comets won't be going anywhere....
Don't be so sure about the comets not going anywhere. The Canucks will not be the parent team next year. Just hope your comets can secure another affiliation.

All these AHL teams are tax writeoffs for the big teams. That's why there's a disperaty in attendance throughout the league. As long as we keep improving the Aud, Vancouver should be here for a while. I know the Devils left after we tried to make improvements but the upgrades weren't to the magnitude that they are now.

where are the canucks going to go?? abbotsford ?? the flames are not going to leave that sweet heart deal anytime soon. they have 5 more years there..... Glenns falls??? thats a good one, comets are out drawing them now. both Albany and Hartford have huge buildings and no fans, Albany is averaging 2600, Hartford is at 3400 both with a huge rent bill, and they dont have the other incomes the comets do. all utica has to do is stay around 3200 a game and they are all set. no rent to pay, all concessions, parking, souvenirs advertising, all helps the comets!!!! uc in the building helps them even more!!!! you need to look at the big picture with your tiny little mind....... even if canucks leave there's 3-4 options available. providence has issues with its building and is playing out of town this season. so that means, no less than 4 options for a parent club IF vancouver can get into abbotsford. it doesnt make any sense for them to go elsewhere.you really need to get a life, just enjoy the games. your the same clown that said utica would never get a team, how many times do you need to be wrong before you shut the heck up?????

I agree with you up to a point. BUT-the under 18 team, while younger, was bigger and faster, with several NHL bound players. As far as either Michigan or UC playing their top talent, every college team I've ever seen (D1 or D3) plays their whole squad the whole game. Maybe an off night, but that's why they play the game. Any college team is "up for the game"pretty much every game they play, and I'm sure that Michigan did not enjoy losing to 17 year olds. No question that UC would struggle against D1 schools; in fact you're being charitable when you say they's take a beating in half of them. My point is that for some moron to say UC hockey sucks is the remark of an ignorant spectator who likely knows nothing about the game other than the fights. Hockey at its best is, in my opinion, D1. I 'll watch NHL and AHL games on TV, but unfortunately, going to the arena to see them live means I'll have to endure fans like mass army who have no real appreciation for the game. Plus, I'll end up sitting next to mass army's girl friend and have to scrunch because she takes up half my seat.

No I was actually the person who stated all summer that utica WAS getting an ahl team. Get your facts straight. Also there is a buyout at the end of this year that the city of abbottsford will exercise. The Canucks will absolutely not be in utica after this season. Guaranteed.
