Tulsa on the other, I don't see them going to juniors unless any other pro options have been exhausted, as they are one of the more stable franchises in the league. I'm sure the USHL and NAHL would love to get into that market. But I would think they would try to make a jump to the ECHL before juniors if/when the CHL falls apart.
Yeah, as I said, the individual who identifies himself as "publisher" of that website has four felony convictions, per the other article I cited. That does severely undermine the credibility of the website.
Just because team officials have responded doesn't mean that what was written isn't true. The team is obviously going to try and mitigate the damage the article may cause to their business.
I Could see Tulsa in the AHL before the ECHL - they'd need some nearby teams to go to the ECHL with them to make it work. There are already four AHL teams fairly close to Tulsa - but of course, they'd need to buy a franchise and move it to get into the AHL.
