Craig Conroy was in Utica yesterday for the game between the Comets and the Heat and spent a lot of time talking to Comets team President Rob Esche. They even introduced Conroy to the crowd at the AUD on the video boards.

Is it typical for Conroy to be at Heat games on the road or am I reading between the lines here?

Trippy. With the Flames and the Heat, we've come to understand that when there's smoke there's fire.

I think the article speaks for itself

Quote:
The 10-year contract signed July 1, 2009, says “the
financial terms shall be reviewed after five years.” That
would be this summer.

If financial terms of the deal were changed, it might be
more difficult for the Heat to remain so isolated from
other teams — about 2,000 miles from the closest
opponent.

Glens Falls is about 50 miles from the closest opponent,
Albany, and makes day trips to seven teams. The
longest trip the Phantoms make is to Norfollk, Va.

The proximity to other teams cuts costs immensely and
also gives players more time on the ice, as opposed to a
bus.

Good thing we have a crow eating thread

Conroy is more or less the GM for the Heat, throw in some recent signings to ATOs and AHL contracts along with the Fact Conroy is a NY State native, I would say you are reading too much into things.
