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

So that leaves you with these little games where the CHL charges you for leaving and the ECHL charges you for joining. So no team goes anywhere. Stop the petty games and merge the leagues already. Forget capping the ECHL at 30. Take any team strong enough to join. It just make sense.
I say it's about time the ECHL significantly drops the cost to join. Lure the strong CHL teams, kill the league and be done with it.
I agree wholeheartedly. It sure would make my silly season much easier on my digestion. The silly season has been absolutely crazy every year since the Mavericks joined the CHL in 2009/10.
