Akwaskne (sic) will be a huge failure and they are literaly on an island. Danubury and Brooklyn will draw well, and the Barons are a toss up although I dont think they will do well I give them the benefit of doubt. If they finish the year, I doubt there will be a second season. This is the EPHL all over again but in markets that arent as good.
Perhaps I exaggerated a bit when I say putrid.

I'm in agreement about what you say with the exception of Brooklyn. While their minor league baseball team draws well, I don't think that an A league hockey team will.
