Missouri and Wichita are drawing pretty solid numbers. Tulsa also has done okay. I don't necessarily believe an ECHL/CHL merger is the best answer...but the CHL is no longer a viable stand-alone operation. It either needs to fold and let the individual markets chart their own course, or work on some kind of merger/absorption deal to save those franchises that can make it long-term.
Having the league own QC and Bloomington is merely postponing the inevitable. Neither one of those markets can be successful with the AA business model. The same goes for Denver, Fort Worth, Arizona, Brampton, and Saint Charles.
