The AHL's board of governors has approved the Flames motion to transfer their top affiliate from the Quad Cities to Abbotsford. Should be interesting to see how well the team draws in enemy territory after disappointing stops in Omaha and Moline.
I also personally wonder if this will begin a move west for the AHL. Abbotsford is completely isolated right now, but one has to wonder if Victoria might push for a move up from the ECHL, and perhaps a couple California teams too?
Would be hilarious to see the Oilers move into Victoria, thus surrounding the Canucks. ;)
