Essentially, the article stated that Bloomington had been taken over by the CHL, that Tulsa is in conversations with the NAHL and USHL, and that another team is seeking a minority investor.

The same website updated the story the next day: http://thejuniorhockeynews.com/?p=11289 after the GM of Bloomington stated to the Bloomington Pantagraph that the CHL had not taken over the team. Pantagraph article available at: http://www.pantagraph.com/sports/pro...a4bcf887a.html

Now, look no further than the masthead of "The Junior Hockey News" to gauge its' credibility - convicted felon Joe Kolodziej (see: http://archives.record-eagle.com/2004/nov/2hockey.htm ) lists himself as publisher in the update and as a "hockey professional, agent, advisor, [and] writer" on the "About" page. Clearly, this is not Arthur Ochs Sulzberger and the New York Times.

However - it does appear that the Hunnewell-Vitales are out in Bloomington. The story has been picked up on several other blogs, and the fact that the team is denying everything in the paper is interesting.
Nothing from Stephen Heisler's site is too credible but Bloomy in trouble is too easy a guess, I'm shocked they iced this year and made it through last year.
