Utica's main source of employment came by the way of Utica Club brewery way back when, crap beer but cheap..

Yeah basically anything coming from Utica is crap and cheap. I don't recall the exact price when I went to Prowlers' games I don't recall paying $20 and people quickly stopped going to those games too. I think UC has a lot more support because it is a college with an obligated fan base with the students. Also, looking at the roster I see Horseheads, Clinton, Buffalo, New Hartford among the locations so I'd bet that plays a role in neighboring townships like Clinton and New Hartford where people actually pay attention to hockey.
I'm not trying to be contradictory but I just think this is a huge mistake. Utica doesn't deserve the benefits of a hockey team and the Flames AHL team doesn't deserve to be dragged through Utica's problems.
