The reason I ask is because this is the second of a ten year contract between the Flames organization and the Heat. So unless Calgary has a history of deal breaking, then no, the Heat aren't going anywhere!
Finances ended the Flames run in Saint John, despite the Calder Cup title not 2 yrs before......

Competition from other hockey franchises ended the flirtation in Omaha as well as Finances as it did when the HEAT were in the Quad Cities.

see Calgary and Fraser Valley are in a 50-50 partnership so unless Fraser Valley , who operate the HEAT, suffer the same issues tht affected Saint John, Omaha & QC, you have a provision as QCSV did to opt out of the agreement before the ten years elapses, but based off Worcester and Rockford who have similar structured agreements, not to mention the influx of finances by the League in regards to the travel subsidy then it's a non-issue.
