If all these things do happen, I have two thoughts about this:
1. The Flames are taking a page out of San Jose's book, in that neither team has ever had any clue at all about running an AHL team, so just move the team to the conjested Northeast, keeping travel costs, and losses, to a minimum.
2. Losing Peoria would also mean losing the Peoria Star Journal and it's "ace" reporter Dave Eminian. He is the AHL's journalistic equivalent to TMZ. Perhaps the Blues may be wanting to sell the team because they can't afford the catering costs for the media room at the Carver Arena anymore.
