There's been talk and rumors about Fort Wayne for years. someone else can help fill in the details but in short: the owners of the Komets don't want to be in the AHL, that's why they held the IHL afloat until it essentially merged with the Central Hockey League last summer.

Indy does have a new Ice franchise playing in the USHL, it gets a good amount of support and is always usually a top team in the USHL. Also the Ice have produced a good number of top NHL prospects.
