Attendance is averages out at around 5000. No idea about finances, but I'd imagine they are losing money, but not huge sums.

If this story is true it might just be a chance to sell high. Vancouver have long been rumoured to want to buy an AHL team and Abbotsford is obviously the ideal location (1 hour away). I think the current Abbotsford team has the worst attendance in the AHL, but that might change with the Canucks connection.

How much would not owning the AHL team really impact the organisation?
