  1. The Edmonton Oilers will keep their Bakersfield AHL team named the Condors, while Calgary Flames narrowed the Stockton team name down to 5 selections (Scorch, Inferno, Fire, Blaze & Heat). Oilers > http://theahl.com/bakersfield-will-remain-the-condors-in-the-ahl-p196448 Flames > http://www.caravannews.com/News/TabId/92/ArtMID/510/ArticleID/3274/Finalist-Names-Revealed-for-Stockton.aspx Flames will soon announce the final name for Stockton and the winning fan will be given season tickets for their inaugural season. Also any news on the San Jose affiliate? So far we have Ontario Reign, San Diego Gulls, Bakersfield Condors.
  2. http://poststar.com/news/local/part-of-glens-falls-civic-center-wall-collapses-hoops-games/article_fec78380-c296-11e4-b07d-67c722cf6b3a.html http://www.twcnews.com/nys/capital-region/news/2015/03/4/section-2-basketball-games-moved.html A portion of the Glens Falls Civic Center's facade collapsed this morning under the weight of heavy snow and ice piled up on the roof. No one was hurt. At present, it appears that there is no damage to the main arena structure or the roof. Engineers are monitoring the area of the wall where the collapse occurred for signs of further weakness; it is possible that more bricks will have to be removed from the facade. The immediate impact is on the high school boy's basketball playoffs that were scheduled for today through the weekend; the games have all been moved to other sites. The Flames start a three-game Canadian road trip tonight, and their next home game is Tuesday against Hamilton. No word yet on whether that game (or any subsequent games) will be postponed, moved, or played as scheduled.

  4. Anyone got $1.5 million for a hockey barn?! This is not good for the long term hockey plan in Glens Falls. Really wonder if state funds can still be used if building is sold? http://poststar.com/news/local/for-sale-city-arena-complete-with-hockey/article_99708f70-fd63-11e3-923c-0019bb2963f4.html
  5. I decided to make this a new topic rather than keeping it intertwined with the Peoria thread where the discussion started. In said Peoria topic, 518HockeyFan asserted that a deal to have the Rangers move from Hartford to Glens Falls had been all but done, but allegedly the Rangers wanted to buy the Glens Falls Civic Center from the city and make it a hockey-only arena, and this demand is what killed the deal. The usual suspects poo-pooed the idea, but I wonder if there was something to it. The story I had heard was that the city would retain ownership of the arena but offer the management contract to MSG as an incentive to land the AHL team. Regardless, the concept of using control of the GFCC as a carrot seemed to be very much a factor. I can see why the city would be reluctant to cut off all sources of revenue except for hockey. The GFCC is, AFAIK, the biggest arena in the North Country, so the events that would normally go there would then either end up in Albany or bypass the area altogether. Bob Belber, the GM of the Times Union Center, has often stated that while the Devils are the arena's anchor tenant, he makes more money from a single concert than from an entire season of Albany Devils hockey. I don't know if the same is true in Glens Falls, and I doubt they get as many events as the TUC, but the point remains: there's a lot of money to be had from hosting non-hockey programming. Now comes the latest news... well, actually, it's about a week old at this point, but I just stumbled across it yesterday and didn't realize it was old until I tracked down this Post-Star article. It appears that the mayor is considering closing the Glens Falls Civic Center if a replacement for the Phantoms can't be found. http://poststar.com/news/local/mayor-closing-civic-center-is-option/article_560045e8-9ca0-11e2-a93e-001a4bcf887a.html This rather goes against my previous thought, doesn't it? If the city thinks the arena can't make money without an anchor tenant (which, to be honest, is a reasonable concern), that puts quite a bit of urgency into the search for a professional sports team. The article mentions maybe trying to attract a basketball team, but would they consider the ECHL? And would the fans support it? Or would it be like when Glens Falls had the UHL: the diehards went because it was hockey, but deep down everyone felt they deserved the AHL. The problem is, it's not like you can just snap your fingers and conjure up an AHL franchise, not since the league achieved its manifest destiny of 30 teams. You have to go after what little is available, and based on a combination of my notes and the rumor mill, there is indeed very little available in the next two offseasons. ECHL franchises seem to be easier to come by, so Glens Falls may be forced to settle on that league if retaining professional hockey is an imperative.

  8. http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=678031&navid=nhl:topheads Can now see a bunch of fans in Philly calling for Hextall to replace Homer if things go bad again this year. Personally, I like the move as I get the feeling we will see a bit more of him in Glens Falls than we did of John Paddock.
