PEI's day will come...that is something that we have been told and promised here in PEI by Savard. It isn't an issue of not consistently drawing when the team isn't a contender, it's never having been a contender and may not be in the near future as well. Plus it's having the same person in charge of all those failures still being in charge where it doesn't look like that will never change.

It's easy to say that people should be out supporting the team no matter what but people do get tired of hearing the same promises from the same people with the same underachieveing results. Charlottetown is a good market but like any other market they would like to have a top team every once in awhile.

Now talking Acadie-Bathurst instread of PEI. Sam Cosentino isn't taking in too much stock in the rumor of the day.

The latest relocation rumour for Acadie-Bathurst is Sorel. But then again, we’ve all seen this movie before

Why would they?

Firstly they would need to invest $30.M in a new rink as the present one sits 1500...

Bathurst should be the first to move.

You've missed my point entirely. I'm not actually suggesting we put a QMJHL team in Miramichi.

My point is that everyone loves a winner. You could put a team pretty much anywhere, and it would survive as long as it's a championship calibre team. What makes a breaks a team in terms of long term survival, (barring a situation where owners are using the team as a tax writeoff or something) is the fanbase sticking around during the lean years.

The Rocket recently signed a several year deal to stay on the Island.

I'd be shocked if it was anything but orange and green.

I guess somebody was not telling the truth.....

Here is an English link in reference to the RDS story.

http://www.theguardian.pe.ca/Sports/...announcement/1

Anyone know who are the unnamed local investors, this article is referring to?

According to Francois Leblanc (Radio Atlantique) the price would be 3 million. Local investors, who we're not really sure are, are short 2 million.

This proves a few things:

The league is a farce. (Which we already knew)

We the league wants an owner out they make exceptions...

They wanted Farrel Miller gone, they made it happen...

They wanted LGM out, they made it happen...

When they want something they get it...

The wanted Lewiston gone, they made it happen, they wanted Sherbrooke in? They made it happen, they wanted Boisbriand to have a team, they made it happen, they wanted Sorel back, it's happening.

unlikely


Just saw on the website that 5 days ago they were promoting the purchasing of Rocket merchandise before the team becomes the PEI Islanders.... That's pretty ****ed up, you can't tell me that the ownership didn't know they were planning on selling a week ago when the rumors have been around for a long time now.

Serge is a con artist if this goes down promoting Islanders making people think this team ishere to stay. Lying to the media all the time saying they weren listening to offers an all of a sudden the team is for sale yeah right. Its a shame we are losing this team.
