Anyone hear of expansion/merger plans for ECHL, CHL, SPHL FOR 2013-14?

It may be too early to talk about teams folding, but it's almost too LATE to only start talking about expansion for 2013-14. Historically, teams that have announced more than a full season before they take the ice do much better with attendance and marketing than teams just hurriedly announced in an off-season. The best time to announce expansion teams would be RIGHT NOW, while people are in a hockey-going mood, and maybe piggyback off the NHL's return.
That said, I'm more out of the loop than usual, and have only heard things on boards, mostly CHL St. Charles.
