If they go and we get another affilliate then so be it. Stracuse had changed 7 times, they all do. We can make a run at albany for the utica devils again. As long as we have a team. But i like our guys we have now. Wouldn't trade them if i didnt have to

Went to my first comets game Friday. Aud looks great. Great atmosphere. Game was fast paced, alot of skill on display. Had picture taken with Comettes, very friendly, fun. If they leave bring on the Rangers! Comets looked real good. A must see. Operation seems well run. Very professional. Totally different than Utica Devils.

You get it. All I'm saying is the Canucks will not be in utica next season. It doesn't mean the comets won't existt they just won't be affiliated with Canucks. I suspect the flames and possibly the devils but I think the devils will be targeting glens falls.

They dont average 2500 butts in seats, that is the bottom line. That small building should be packed every game. I dont care how many tixs are sold, its butts in seats and they are failing big time. 3800 should be easy to fill EVERY NIGHT. No more excuses.

All anyone needs to do is look at video clips readily available on youtube. Most games it appears have a ridiculously low show up rate. They may have a lot of tickets sold but a big money maker is concessions and memorabilia sales. I suspect those last two are severely lagging for the team.

i dont know if abbotsford will give the canucks the same deal the flames got. the city is coughing up over a million a year for that team. and theres no way a team can survive in abbotsford with almost no practice time and paying for all the visiting teams to fly in to town. i really dont want the devils back here, they cant promote or draw fans in albany. flames or rangers would be the most likley options. but i dont see a team in abbotsford next season.

The Canucks owner wants to be in abbottsford. It's very well known and documented. He also was seeking a deal no where close to what the flames received. It's actually cheaper for the city to buy out the flames/heat ownership after this season than to pay over the next five seasons at current trends. It's going to happen.

Here's a thought- why doesn't the city buy the comettes and have it co-opted by/as an AHL franchise for the highest bidder,etc? Brilliant or what?

my sources say that vancouver wasnt happy with how negotiations went with abbotsford. they are loosing alot of money there. thats why the canucks signed for six years with utica. they will wait till the flames leave abbotsford before attempting to go in there with a team. it will happen one day, but its five and a half years from now. vancouver will want to go in on their terms not abbotsfords and not wanting to pay the flames to leave. vancouver has put a ton of time into the comets and the fan support is great. they have no reason to leave utica. lots of practice time, short road trips, players are home alot. the players love it!!! and the team is developing fast!!!

well the owner may want it, but the people who run the day to day operations will have more to say about it than the owner. after all they are the hockey experts. abbotsford is so far from the rest of the ahl that they will be better off with a whl team than a ahl team. and my guess is if vancouver wanted its team in abbotsford , thats where they would be now, not utica. money talks and bs walks, if vancouver wanted abbotsford all they had to do is cough up the money. you must smoke some really good stuff..........

Was at the game on Friday. EXCELLENT GAME! Fair attendance looked to me like about 2500. I hope it improves. Excellent time and I paid $15.00 for the tixs.
