Like I said last year when others suggested it, owning an ECHL team is not a smart business decision for Pegula.
The ECHL is for small-time businessmen that want to flaunt their money.
There's no profit to be made and the long-term benefits are negligible since it's still not much of a development league.
Some teams own their ECHL affiliates (Carolina and LA), but others have gotten out of the business in recent years (NJ last year).
I don't believe Carolina still has an ECHL affiliate. The Checkers moved to AHL. I may be wrong though...
