I think the final wheel has fallen off the wagon for the CHL: If you look at it the league has 10 teams (not counting the Beast and Chill), if rumors are true and the league loses Mizzouri and Allen to the ECHL (just rumors nothing substantial there) that would give the league 8 teams, add Brampton is only 9. The league would have to take control of St. Charles to maintain a 10 team league, otherwise it would certainly end the league as I believe some teams have a clause the league must at least maintain 10 teams (not sure if that is true, but I recall hearing at one time).
The league has not taken over Bloomington.
this article from the Bloomington paper,
there are ownership possibilities.
