I say move 'em to Fort Mac. Makes about as much sense as Abby.
Fort Mcmurray is now the third largest city in Alberta. And doesn't have a pro team of any sport.

I think it could work but you would need a new building. Casman Center only has 2000 seats. Although that is more than the Heats current average attendance the AHL would not consider a 2000 seat venue.

Just for a laugh. The Fort Mcmurray Oil Barons (AJHL) have roughly the same average attendance as the Abbotsford Heat. 1500 people a game!

BTW Murda, thanks for the article. I hope the Wranglers find a home. Because it is Vegas, their promos a more adult themed. Their games are a lot of fun. They even sometimes have midnight games.

Ft. Mac is a good idea. Not only are rich Calgarian execs bored and have nuthing but time and money, but also half of the NewFoundLand male population is hockey crazy.

Yeah lots of people in Fort McMurray with a lot of spare time in the winter with not a lot to do, they could easily support an AHL team up here.

They are planning to build a new bigger area downtown, they have acquired the land (and pissed off a lot of people in the process as per normal) and are taking proposals from a few different builders for a 7000 seat arena.
