That is why you see so many new teams every year. Take a look at the North. The Traverse City Northstars are the longest established team at 5 or 6 years. I am not sure how they are still in TC as attendance is abysmal and has been for all seasons. They are a good team by making the playoffs almost every year. Facility costs for them are probably really cheap though as the TC prospects camp and Red Wings training camp brings a lot of money to the rink.
