Just a geographic clarification.

No - that's not "just as far away" as the other AHL cities. I don't think you fully understand the degree of isolation that Abbotsford is from the rest of the league. The closest other AHL team to Abbotsford is...

OKLAHOMA CITY.

I'm not kidding. Their closest "rival" is, yes, more than two THOUSAND miles away.

Fort McMurray is a bike ride away in comparison.
