There is no official rule, but unofficially they will be toast if they miss the playoffs. The CHL worries about host cities getting embarrassed with this format - that's why Boughner likely said what he did. I don't recall a team that has won the bid to host after missing the playoffs. I would be surprised if you could find a team that wasn't at least .500 (maybe even .600) the season before hosting the cup anytime recently.
