We agree 100% on this as well. I expect the CHL's aggregate talent level to continue its decline due to the league's rapidly failing business model. However, as of right now, it is not in SPHL territory.
Somebody needs to shut the CHL down before good markets like Rapid City are damaged irreparably. I hope this ownership change last season (where the team owners bought the CHL) leads to a break-up of this hazardous situation. You can't expect franchises like Missouri and Wichita to underwrite all the dead weight new CHL markets like Saint Charles and Denver have been producing.
