IMO Abbotsford would work well as a Canuck affiliate, but the current situation there with Calgary sucks. I am in Seattle and drive up to Abby (2 hour drive) for about 5-10 games per season and try to support them the best I can given my proximity; the AHL is the league that interests me the most since I enjoy following prospects on the cusp of the NHL. The AESC is usually empty, sadly. I sense the team has a real lack of visibility. Sometimes I will ask fans at Thunderbirds and Silvertips games here if they ever go up to see the Abbotsford Heat and usually get one of these responses:
1) Oh yeah, the Heat. What league is that, BCHL?
2) Abbotsford Heat? I've never heard of them.
3) Where's Abbotsford?

Also, I don't get where rumors about Wolves-to-Abbotsford are coming from. Chicago Wolves have some of the AHL's best fan support...
