True, I would normally agree. Some have argued a few New England teams should be considered higher end talent, but the market dictates they have to be Tier 3 pay to play. There are so many other market options between NCAA D1, D3, FHL, ECHL, and AHL highly concentrated in the area that a Tier 1 junior league won't work financially. I hope that gets put to the test soon.

Also if the CH1L does exist, it could work financially in an area like Texas because there are so few other options to compete with. The result (over time) would be two "top end" leagues with no real concentration of talent.

Fortunately I'm already seeing the CH1L idea being debunked. Many people know that writer goes a bit too far, but here's an article that raises some questions on the legitimacy of the CH1L "story."

QC signs 10 year agreement with CHL:

http://www.myqcmallards.com/newsandi...article_id=794

Don't put too much into this, the IHL teams had 2 years to decide and all CHL teams have 10 year agreements.

Funny how that works out. Rumors had the Quad going junior along with Evansville and Fortwayne going to the ECHL. That was going to leave Dayton out as an island. Now Dayton is in trouble and may fold whereas the Quad signs a 10 year agreement...

Really just standard procedure, doesn't mean much.

Even though I don't follow the CHL at all, it would be nice if that league got some good news more than once every couple years....

I'm not certain it can be Bloomington unless hey have a backup to the FHL or somethng. They have a stipulation in their lease that it has to be a pro team.

Same guy keeps hinting that it may be the Quad City Mallards.

Wouldn't shock me. 4 owners in 4 years, 3 different leagues. The payroll issue midseason.

That'd be a shame. You'd think a market the size of the Quad Cities could easily sustain a low-level minor league hockey team, but they've been one of the rumored troubled teams for the past two years at least.

Inconsistency at the top and not winning. The AHL couldn't sell(they changed the team name) If the AHL couldnt sell I have lost hope. They were really good in the UHL with the Muskegon's, Fort Wayne's and Kalamazoo's. However the best teams in that league cheated the cap.

He is referring to former QC owner Chris Lenchenski.... I'm not sure in what fashion because he is now the President of Front Row Marketing Services. Front Row is owned by Comcast-Spectacor.

He was involved in a lawsuit that was settled out of court.

More on lawsuit...

From what I recall he padded attendance, had a 3 year plan and had a slogan for the team entitled "Back To the Future"

QC Times sports writer Dan Angell's tweets from today:
Quote:
Stopped by i wireless today. Heard discussion about ensuring a home game has no conflict. Appears business as usual for Mallards. ‪
Quote:
Offices were open as normal. Will keep eyes and ears open if anything changes, but as of now, nothing unusual with Mallards. ‪

Cohn is continuing to tweet about QC. One player even told him to look into unpaid medical expenses.

I'd follow this account closely to see what happens.

The funny thing about Cohn is he takes what hes told and tries to use it as his own.

I was aware QC had a payroll glitch midseason.

This league is in huge trouble. If they lose another team whoever it is, Stick a fork in em they're done. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if QC is the next to fall.

The single entity league that was so highly touted just a few years ago as a model seems to be a broken bussines plan.
With teams leaving to franchise leagues like ECHL, USHL, NAHL, CHL may wanna take a look at their plan.
