After looking at the website for each CHL team and their ticket advertisements I've gathered some observations.
Allen- tickets were being advertised tickets but no amount of games
Arizona- tickets advertised for 33 home games (standard in the CHL)
Bloomington- tickets were advertised but no amount of games was specified
Brampton- tickets were advertised for 36 home game(standard in the ECHL)
St. Charles- barley any info About the team at all and no mention at all of tickets anywhere.
Denver- no ticket info
Fort Worth- no ticket info
Missouri- tickets advertised for 33 home games (standard in the CHL)
Quad city- tickets were advertised but no amount of games were specified.
Rapid city- no ticket info
Tulsa- tickets were advertised but no amount of games were specified.
Wichita- tickets advertised for 33 home games (standard in the CHL)
WHAT THE FUTURE MAY HOLD
Ultimately I think it's very possible we see Rapid City, Missouri, Wichita and Tulsa in the ECHL in the near future
I believe Brampton and Denver also could be possibilities but they would be far less likely. Brampton would work in the Atlantic division but there is no guarantee the league would want to deal with a Canadian team. In order for Denver to be admitted into the ECHL they would probably need permission from the eagles, and given how the Rocky Mountain Rage situation unfolded, I don't see that happening.
Due to the lack of news and advertising, I think we can all assume something is seriously wrong in St. Charles.
I just don't see the ECHL taking a team like Fort Worth due to their attendance trouble and arena.
