So establishing some roots in the area early on in their careers might be helpful.
We don't really know that do we? It depends if travelling thousands of miles more is helpful.
Their thinking was that Chicago was the only available team.
Fair enough if that was the case but it still saves our prospects a hell of a lot of travelling. They are also well supported in Chicago as I have said.
A Canucks affiliate will draw much better attendance than the Heat currently do.
I don't doubt that. Will they draw more than the Wolves do though?
An Abbotsford affiliate would have all those positive attributes. Poor attendance in Abbotsford is mostly due to the fact that the NHL team associated with the franchise is a rival of the Canucks, in addition to being a terrible hockey team.
You seem to be using our prospects to give a few hockey fans somewhere to go on a Saturday night. Is that really what is best for them though...................By the way do you know who are the Farm team for LA Kings?.................Manchester Monarchs, New Hampshire................I only mention that because it hasn't prevented the Kings from winning the SC. The Ducks affiliate is in New York
