From the Flames side of the story
Keep in mind: the Flames are in the third season of a 10-year agreement to operate the Heat out of the posh Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.
“We have been approached by representatives in Utica concerning an opportunity for the AHL,” the Flames said in a written statement issued Sunday afternoon. “We understand they are building a case for the AHL to return there.
“We are under contract and committed to Abbotsford, and have made no alternate commitments.”
Sounds like Utica or a sugar daddy would have to pay the "break up" fees to Abbotsford to break the lease to move to Utica.
Upon the news breaking of the possible Flames shifting to Utica, speculation erupted on Twitter over the possibility of the Canucks moving their farm team to Abbotsford from Chicago.
