Try having Duane Lewis as the owner of the only team in your market. Whatever slim chance the Mallards had of making it out of the abyss quickly vanished when Lewis grabbed the reins. He demoted QC's only decent front office person (Ryan Simmons) to the point where Simmons took a better position elsewhere.

The CHL is not only making it tough for AA hockey to consolidate, but it's ruining the product in markets that needed serious help. Lewis is doing all of this to keep his rickety ship afloat for another season. He couldn't care less what those actions do to the sport in a broader context.
