I just hope that the Heat having to handle travel costs for visiting teams doesn't contribute to a complete collapse in revenue. This really is the best hockey that this city will ever see. It would be a shame to lose it. In their brief history, the Heat have been hovering around the same attendance averages as the previous locations of Quad City and Omaha. The only difference now is that they need sellouts for the Manitoba Moose to spike up the average.
the AHL did the same thing for MLSE when they played at both Memorial Coliseum and then Mile One Stadium in St. John's, NFLD.... THE LEAGUE'S HELPING Fraser Valley and the Heat by doing tht, by taking tht expense off the ownership, which is why you're seeing two game series in Abbotsford.......
