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

I never like seeing a city lose its team. The Wheeling market is a throwback to the original days of the ECHL. Losing Wheeling and/or Elmira would be a shame. The league still seems to be missing a piece to me. No Johnstown was/is a huge loss.
I guess I could see Wheeling as they are a long standing member and all. But Elmira not so much. I just think it's the inevitable truth. Minor league hockey really passed over the small markets a decade ago. Don't ever really expect another small market to land in this league again.
