If the Flames are going to move their AHL affiliate I wonder if they would be happier in a place like Kansas City. They have a CHL franchise there but there must be a way to upgrade that to the AHL. The Mavs are building a real presence in the city and hockey is on the radar because of youth organizations like the Junior Mavs, Russell Stover, etc.
I'm not going to say Utica is the answer, because who actually knows. But I just know it makes more sense for the Heat to get out of Abbotsford and go further east.

But the difference in flights between KC and and Utica to Calgary are about 90 minutes (4hr from Utica, 2.5 from KC), so the difference between the midwest and the northeast is pretty minimal.
