none of that matters, wildcat, bc that point of an independent club already was addressed, in the bylaw after watching the Skipjacks and Binghamton go through those seasons, that as you stated and Rochester considered that, it's highly doubtful had the Sabres not bought Rochester, it wasn't as far back as 2006, that Rochester almost ceded their license..... it's highly doubtful the A would've overlooked that bylaw on the Independent, the only way you can now do it is do what Kahn did by buying the license of an existing franchise or as Petrovek was rumored to be doing in '09.

TO ME, THE current roster of markets is what we have, and the AHL seems to be comfortable with the 1 to 1 affiliation....
