The city of Abbotsford and the @abbotsfordheat have called a press conference for tomorrow morning with rumors the team is moving to NY

Do we have to start writing Only the Goddamned AHL now?

I can't wait for chapters like:

"Glens Falls: Sport's Most Desirable Crown Jewel"

guess so, lol

This would be a cool logo, though.

Did this last year. Sounds like they'll inherit Glens Falls, though. However, "Adirondack Flames" either sounds like a forest fire or a burning chair, so I would recommend neither.

It does let them use the Atlanta A for a logo though.

Utica's taken, unless the Comets were a one year thing.

Auburn, Elmira, and Ithaca still need their AHL teams, you guys!

But yeah, it's gonna be Glens Falls

Supposedly Ken King will be in attendance tomorrow for the press conference. Seems odd that he'd be there if this is in fact the relocation of the Heat.

Plattsburgh or Burlington wouldn't be the worst idea, the worst idea, of course, being Abbotsford. Might make a better Canadiens affiliate than Hamilton, if they decide not to go through with Laval.

To be fair, Triple A baseball made it work for 27 years.

Flames already have their ECHL team in Anchorage.

Ah well the reports of a move to Glenn Falls are a bit too premature.

Well, they just announced that they're done in Abbotsford. They're going somewhere, and probably to the longtime AHL market that's just about to open up.

City's paying the Flames $5.5 million to kill the deal, which is less money than they would have lost had the team stayed for the duration. This was never going to end well, so I guess at least it's ended less-bad.
