NHL/AHL Affiliations for next year

I heard Syracuse wasn't going to be with Columbus next season?

Can people bring me up to date for next year?

That would be great, thanks!

Dallas Stars/Texas Stars

Sale of the Iowa Chops to the Texas Stars ownership group was approved in May, so they no longer are considered to have limited membership.

In response to an effort from the Lowell Devils Booster Club to keep the AHL affiliate in that city, Lou Lamoriello sent a letter to to that group saying it was "financially impossible" under a new lease.
The Devils will move their AHL farm team to Albany, N.Y., for the 2010-11 season.

I would say that pretty much covers all the movement so far.

The big question I have is, if it is a done deal, why no announcement from Albany or the Devils? IS thins just something to be used in their ongoing negotiations with Lowell?

There are no further negotiations with Lowell. The Lowell Devils are most definitely dead and cremated. Former Lowell STHs have already bought season tickets from Manchester, Worcester, and even the Boston Bruins. Some of the front office staff have found other jobs and started calling former Lowell STHs to offer them Worcester Sharks tickets. It seems that the Devils aren't going to announce the move to Albany officially until they have every last jot and tittle (and tisten) down in indelible ink. It's the way the Devils do business, so Albany should be used to it by now.

A minor league franchise requires weekend dates if they are going to do well at the box office. The more the better. Universities tend to swallow those dates up, and if they don't the more profitable concerts do...

Its really that simple. The CHL would love to expand into El Paso and Tucson and Colorado Springs. All three cities need to build new arenas for one reason or another before their one sheet of ice is available for a minor league club...

Its the reason why minor league clubs and major college cities have disputes. Lubbock failed because of this. Austin required a new hockey arena for the CHL, much less an AHL club. Many universities build basketball oriented arenas unsuitable for hockey...

While there are other reasons why clubs fail, the above is one of them...
