For the league to revoke the franchise, the franchise would have to violate certain terms of the agreement with the league. In Iowa's case, the franchise borrowed money using the actual franchise (license to operate an AHL team) as collateral. The Flames/Heat have done nothing close to that. As long as they meet the terms of their agreement with the AHL, the franchise can't be revoked at the will of the league.
