Rochester is the only Western Conference team that didn't play the Admirals this season. And last season. And the season before that. And ...
The Amerks are owned by billionaire Terry Pegula, so I doubt it's a money issue. The Amerks have been trying to get into the EC for years. This ownership and last has requested to the league that they play a EC modeled schedule. The only reason why they even go to Texas is because the Texas teams have requested the Amerks the last several years.
On the original topic of the Spengler Cup, I think it's fantastic. The Amerks will have a busy month of Dec. hosting an outdoor game as well as participating in this tournament.
