We believe that finally, after months of speculation and going back and forth, the Ducks and the Crunch will be affiliated for at least another year. Howard has finally made a definite statement to that effect to the Syracuse Post Standard, as reported through Twitter. The agreement will carry both teams through the ’11-’12 season, and also contains an option for the ’12-’13 season, something that will have to be decided on midway through next year.
The Post’s Twitter quote is:
Dolgon says he’s not negotiating with any other possible affiliate and he’s moving on under presumption Ducks will remain parent team.
