The AHL should be fine either way, and get the benefit of seeing some players they might not have otherwise, for the ECHL this could be great if the NHL stays out all year, or a huge mess if they settle part way through the year.
Lots of ECHLers will struggle to find jobs, especially all the guys on Elmira after they fold
