If we were to move to the Southeast, then I would not be opposed to it at all; however, considering the presence of the ECHL Gladiators in nearby Gwinnett, I'd rather jump ship from Cincinnati and affiliate with them, and possibly move our AHL team to Memphis if the chance presents itself.
Memphis has been the hardest place to sell on the sport in Tennessee. There's no permanent ice in the city, and just four high school teams (one of which is based in northern Mississippi). If we could put a team in the FedEx Forum downtown and charge about $15 on the average, it would be a tremendous way to help grow the sport in West Tennessee.
All that said, I have really enjoyed our relationship with Milwaukee, and I think the organization feels the same way and won't want to break that relationship any time soon.
