So if Calgary stays put in leaving the Heat in Abbotsford. I wonder what type of backlash there will be from the fans, the media, and the government.
There is likely a very small minority of Heat STH who wouldn't renew if the Canucks affiliated with the new Abbotsford team. The Government (local) is still having to cover their losses, something that appears would have been minimized based on Aquinili's offer. Casual fans and potential season ticket holders will be POed that the Heat are still there, because of Calgary's stubborness, leading to decreased revenue from the team, meaning additional taxpayer dollars to cover the team.
The 2013-2014 Abbotsford Heat franchise may be a complete disaster. Canuck fans especially may say screw it and give up their already fickle support for the team.
