St.Johns and the ACC

I've heard that they may be having more games and the playoffs at the ACC. Any truth to this? I think it would be a slap in the face to St.John's games, but living in Toronto I would definitely want to check out some affordable minor pro hockey.

Unless they intend to move the team out of St. John's permanently, they shouldn't touch those playoff games. They'd have to kiss most of next year's season ticket sales goodbye. The owner of the St. John's AHL franchise would probably end up suing the Leafs over it.

The team is moving to Toronto after this season.

I don't know which part of this statement to correct first.

They are moving the team out of St. John's permanently. And Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment owns the St. John's franchise of course.

That being said, if St. John's makes the playoffs, I hope they wouldn't bring the games to Toronto. That would be a kick in the teeth to the fans in St. John's who have supported the team all along- especially since this is the first year in a while they actually have a good team.

What was wrong with my "Unless they intend to move the team out of St. John's permanently"? If they are moving the team, my statement is then true, isn't it?

I always believed NHL teams simply had an agreement with existing AHL franchises. If I was wrong, that's the only wrong statement in my post.

I agree.

I agree.
The team name should have given away who the owner is.

I belive the rumour stems from some sort of Labour issue and Mile One Stadium etc. etc. something about how they might HAVE to move to Toronto early, I don't think it would happen though.

Not really, the Providence Bruins aren't owned by the Boston Bruins, nor are the Bingo Senators owned by the Ottawa Senators.

I'd hate to see that happen. It's not really fair to fans of the team.

Yeah I;m not sure either but it has something to do with a labour dispute. If the Baby Leafs do make the playoffs, I hope everything runs smoothly and the people in Nfld can see their Baby Leafs one last time before they move to Toronto (although attendance has been down this year or so I heard, backlash?)

the labour dispute with mile one stadium employees has ended before it began. that's all settled.

the leafs cannot move any games without the permission of the board of directors in st.john's. the baby leafs' director of hockey operations says he will not recommend to the board that any games be moved.

Good to see that condescension is still going strong.
