Honestly think that the CHL will keep running, even if the ECHL raids their top drawing teams, and the quality of play is reduced to single A level.
That's why I'm hesitant to say it will fold this summer. I think eventually markets like Allen, Rapid City, and Missouri will say enough. However, the CHL seems to be carving out a niche in keeping "brain dead" markets like QC, Saint Charles, and Brampton from officially dropping out of professional hockey.
It's a horrible business model and will eventually collapse under the weight of its stupidity. That said, I believe it might carry on this way for another few years.
