Driesen- It does make more sense. It's also a hell of a lot easier to affiliate yourself with an ECHL team rather than an AHL team, so simply affiliating with Lake Erie isn't so simple.
Also, in terms of league to league traffic, the AHL and ECHL have more than NHL-AHL.
i know. but a team in Ohio will be available in the very near future imo. would have just been better to keep the team in Dayton and move the ahl team when that happens. knowing nothing about elmyra, i find it hard to believe they will be as good of an organization as Dayton was for Columbus. we shall see.
