Sweet! I may actually go to AHL games since they're much cheaper than Canucks games and I'd get to see our prospects develop.

The Canucks having their affiliate in Abbotsford makes tons of sense, and it also makes the AHL out West a permanent item. Look to see more teams now start to move their franchises out to California, Washington over the next several years.
You're smart, I like you.

It makes sense as a business move AND a developmental move. Now the prospects can get access to the best trainers, facilities, etc.

I would definitely catch a Baby Canucks game in Abbotsford. The travel schedule is brutal at the moment, but at least it will prepare them somewhat for the bigs, if this all holds true.

The only thing that worries me is that the prospects havign to travel so much may take a toll on them. Also free agent prospects might be scared to sign with us and having to live in Abby w/ the travel as oppose to staying in a bigger city in Chicago

I hope they wouldn't continue to be the "Heat". Abbotsford Millionaires anyone? or the Jonny Canuck in the V?

I'm willing to bet that a lot of them would live in Vancouver proper and commute.

Having the Canucks organization at the helm is more enticing than Calgary's, especially since Vancouver has shown their willingness to spend money to help the team succeed in non traditional ways like diet and sleep study.

No chance it would be the heat, I am down for the Abbotsford Millionaires.

Come to think of it, It has a damn nice feel 2 it also.

You'll likely see alot of the team staff (coaches, trainers, etc) move to Abbotsford from Peoria with the team, unless the Canucks clean house.

Likely a fair amount of "Heat" staff, such as the inhouse entertainment, sales staff, would be retained, but again, that's not a guarantee.

I doubt it based on the the Heat's attendance issues.

I would love Peoria's staff, especially their coaches for development.

St. Louis can keep Arniel.

As long as the deal excludes out Arniel I am happy. He is free to go about developing AHL lifers instead of doing his job to develop our prospects.

This probably also means that Canucks will be affiliating themselves with Victoria's ECHL team. Kalamazoo was only a couple hours away from Chicago.

Do they have to play in Abbotsford? Could they possibly move it to, or closer to Vancouver?

We don't have an ECHL team anymore. We have WHL and BCHL. The Salmon Kings were the ECHL affiliate before they folded.

The S-Kings folded when they brought in the WHL's Royals.

If they move a team to BC, they will be playing in Abbotsford not anywhere closer to Vancouver. Why make another arena when they have one already in Abbotsford

(Part 2)...St. Louis Blues to affiliate with Chicago Wolves and @VanCanucks to buy Peoria to move to Abbotsford. #ahlcarousel @TEAM1040
there was too much smoke for this to not be a real possibility. really good deal for the team imo, and for the prospect development. they need to make sure they get a great gm for the farm team like heisinger was for the moose. heisinger found a lot of prospects and touted prospects that turned out to be great nhlers.

Toronto has both the Marlies and Leafs. No reason why we couldn't have your Vancouver Canucks and your Vancouver Millionaires.
