Their purchase of the AESC and moving of the farm teams will be well received in the community, but it will not be as great as many people think. The entire process of adding an arena and team to Abbotsford was done in the equivalent of the Liberals enacting the HST. It will take forever for the city of Abbotsford to forgive the way it all went down.
However, the surrounding communities will be huge in supporting the baby Canucks. Chilliwack, Mission, Langley etc will deliver lots of fans.
