In my mind the two CHL's should be about equal in popularity, granted their skill level. The Canadian one has teams like London and Quebec, which draw about 12,000. Those are the leaders in attendance for the whole organization. That's even more than some NHL teams.

The attendance leader for the American CHL is Missouri. They have an average attendance of 5,744. Yes, that is pretty good for an american market Minor League team, but a league leader?

How is this league even called the "Central Hockey League" if the teams are all in the south. If this league wants to survive, they need to dump all teams that are drawing less than 3,500 for an average. The remaining six teams should have their players picked up by the FHL, a fledging New England hockey league.
