Would the ECHL ever work in Montana or Washington?

Louisville just built an arena worthy of an NHL team, *but* the University of Louisville has first dibs for their basketball team, and there's a renewed talk of trying to get an NBA team there as well, so I don't know if that would happen. Freedom Hall and Broadbent Arena (both of which help former minor-league hockey teams) are both falling apart.
Lexington, KY, is in talks to renovate Rupp Arena (where their former AHL/ECHL teams have played). But both teams folded due to poor attendance, and an arena that sits 24k+ is a little big
