Anyone hear of expansion/merger plans for ECHL, CHL, SPHL FOR 2013-14?

Yes. As much as the off year will stink like a million skunks in a steel mill, it will be worth it in the long term if Peoria gets back into the ECHL. Speaking from personal experience as a hockey fan in a city (Cleveland) that had a year off so a more stable outfit could get a year's head start on ticket sales.
