If someone could just wise up and say ok, lets take the right apporach to this, they could do something like we have seen the SPHL do.

The SPHL has moved into markets where AA hockey hasn't worked out, Augusta, both Mississippi teams, Louisiana, Pensacola. For those cities the Single A model works.

Dayton didn't work out in AA hockey, but the FHL team seems to be ok so far, and there are other northeastern markets like it that could do well if the right owners and league were to come along.

Unfortunately the FHL did not make the smart decision to make sure their league was set up right.
Maybe the FHL needs more of this:
