The ECHL would welcome them. They have agreements with the CHL and depending who you ask and when you ask, you'll get different answers about the agreements of both teams. Some saying RC didn't sign a standard 10-year deal, only 5-year. Some saying RC was promised a team closer to them and tried to leave when that fell through (Casper, WY). Some saying that Allen's deal has an out clause if there are no other Texas teams.
FWIW, Wolski tweeted out Saturday night that Fort Worth would be folding.
