The city is struggling to stay afloat and the Huskies are a big part of its income, if they leave, the city will be a disaster. However, if they go on a big run, and make it to the Mem Cup, and who knows, maybe win it....then that team will stay, and the city will be saved. There's a lot at stake there too. If the team leaves, jobs will be lost. The town will face a large crisis and then what? Sure Mikael Tam MAY not play hockey again. But these people will have a hard time finding work and then will be on really hard times. How is that not a bad thing? So, I stand by the Huskies to appeal this, if not for anything, but for a meal for little Timmy.

No they arent...Michael Whalen has no idea...

The team is owened by 17 local owners...the main owner is filtyhy rich and owns half the city.

I dont blame you for bringing it up, but it was poor reporting on Whalen's part.

That team averages something like 2300 fans a game and they break even...thats a very low attendance number in junior but they make it work...they are at 90% capicity every night and the local government is upgrading the arena and pouring 4-5 Million of tax payers dollars into it.
