Do the Canucks want to develop players or spread their AHL brand to Abbotsford?

If they want to develop players they should stay the hell away from Abbotsford. Like others have mentioned the Heat have the worst travel schedule, the most injuries, and probably one of the worst farm systems in the league. I think it would be absolutely moronic to put the Canucks farm club there just so a few fans can watch their AHL hockey affiliate.

And you have to ask yourself: why would the Flames move their farm team to the east coast when they have a sweet heart deal with the city of Abbotsford to underwrite their losses?

Clearly there are consequences to putting an AHL club in Abbotsford.
