I would assume it would be beneficial for both the flames and Nucks if the heat sold the team and moved closer to home. I can garuntee the games would be sold out almost every night
Beneficial in the sense that they would have more fans? Yes of course, Beneficial finically? no as it stands it is impossible for the heat (flames) to lose money on their farm team for the next 8 years.

They choose Abbotsford because of the amazing contract they were given and it is much closer to the Flames than many of the other ahl teams it makes alot of sense.
