Weird about the Flames re-locating the team.
1) Why move the team all the way across the continent from where they are right now? Easier bring in a player in the case of an emergency (injuries).
2) Abbotsford subsidizes the team; Flames got a sweartheart deal to help cover the losses (re: attendance) - so that more than offsets I think the higher travel expenses in having a AHL affiliate in the west vs the east coast.
