Re: Amesbury

http://www.newburyportnews.com/news/local_news/m-hockey-complex-coming-to-amesbury/article_b94fb576-9a23-5767-b63a-32452da71d91.html

Starting the planning process - so it's a ways out.

Re: Amesbury

I hope they call their team "Southside Johnny and the Amesbury Jukes"

Re: Amesbury

the bigger question is which organization has committed themselves to play there. there is no way they plan and build this type of facility without
a committment from a major player...IHC???

If you build it, they will come.

But, it won't be IHC. In case you didn't notice, IHC's youth hockey home rink already has the owner's name on it, and a 10 year deal for ice, which was the result of a $3+ M "donation" to MC.

And he just bought the River Hawks to give him greater control over Skate III ice time, where his Juniors teams are located.

But, hey, other than that, excellent rumormongering! What's a few million among friends?

Re: Amesbury

financing does not work with "if you build it they will come"
someone has made a large commitment to Amesbury
IHC boys in Merrimac, girls in hockey town, juniors in Tyngsboro
his ego is all over this facility
this would give him a Marlboro/flames facility

Re: Amesbury

Yes it may be a great facility, but as we have covered in a number of Seacoast posts, the draw for quality youth hockey up that way thins out. You are not going to get the families on the fringe of Boston to drive to Amesbury for practices a few times per week when there are plenty of other EHF or E9 options much closer.

I understand. It's all right. It's hard to admit when you're wrong.

Re: Amesbury

Was told the Predators are moving to the new Amesbury rink.

Re: Amesbury

I just got a notification that the name - "Amesbury Jukes" has just filed for a trade mark.
