Even though the crowd was only 3,600 it was a loud group. I am also hoping attendance picks up after football and baseball is over. I know it isn't the NHL, but it is fun exciting and so far high scoring hockey.

I'm not sure if it was my connection or KNBR itself, but the Bulls broadcast was sketchy at best. I ended up switching over the the Reign's feed sometime in the third period... just in time to hear the Bulls blow a huge 4-1 lead.
They eventually lost the first away game in a shootout, giving the Reign their first home win. Bummer.
But the Bulls hold no ECHL rights except the guys on their roster (as they are an expansion team).
Playing time -- yep, does help.
That wasn't a specific comment about this transaction...AHL teams don't hold player rights but ECHL ones do, so sometimes players have to go back to a team outside their contractually signed organization and that can cause a chain reaction of open spots elsewhere
