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

I've heard about Allen and Rapid City going ECHL on several different forums. People can say it's just smoke right now, but I suspect there's a real fire burning. Once the CHL playoffs conclude, we're likely to hear about their departure.
Some people say this could be a death knell for the CHL, but I'm inclined to believe the league will attempt to soldier on without those two markets. Whether that attempt will be feasible is another question. With Bloomington's ownership situation hazy right now and Saint Charles totally MIA, there are way too many bumps in the road.
