Was reading on another site that the malards are closing the doors for next year. With talks of Dayton doing the same. It looks like the CHL is falling apart right infront of our eyes. Looks like the CHL powers to be need to get on their game and try to plug this hole in the sinking ship. I do not want to lose pro hockey.

pro hockey will not leave wichita, if the chl falls apart which I don't think is going to happen this season, we will most likely just move to a different league. My guess is forte wayne would start up the ihl again (which is what they want to do anyways) and we would be one of the teams to go there.

Who says we want to start up another version of the IHL?

Some "fans" seem to have a need to worry, in my opinion the sky is not falling, and the CHL is not going anywere. Teams coming and going are part of minor league hockey, there is nothing new happening this year.

The IHL used to be the UHL and used to be the CHL as in Colonial Hockey League so they could change the name but keep the lettering and some history as well.

Seems like a lot more going than coming as of late. I'd say this is a new trend and one that will probably continue unless something drastic changes. Without going back and making a list I'd be willing to bet that in the past 4 years the IHL & CHL have lost 3 teams for every expansion team. This year that ratio will be higher since I doubt we see a new team start-up and I'm certain we'll lose more than 3.

Looks like the CHL since 2006/2007 has gained 4 teams to expansion and lost 8.
Gain - Texas, Rapid City, Allen & Missouri
Lost - Youngstown, Austin, Lubbock, Rocky Mountain, Oklahoma City, New Mexico, Corpus Christi & Amarillo

The IHL has lost 4 and gained 2
Gain - Quad City & Evansville
Lost Muskegon, Port Huron, Flint & Kalamazoo

So since 2006/2007 for every team the leagues have added they lost 2.

Texas & Quad City also had been in those leagues previously but I counted them as adds. It also looks like the Evansville team was possibly Muskegon the previous year so you could argue that we've really only added 3 or 4 teams and lost 12

This is just my opinion. But, of the teams lost in the CHL, OKC and Rocky Mt. were the only significant losses. Especially, OKC.

I know we aren't discussing expansion, but I think a team in the St. Charles, MO area would work great.

Evansville is not an expansion team. Evansville bought the rights to the Muskegon franchise.

I can't remember what article it was in from the Fort Wayne papers but it mentioned St.Charles maybe in 2012-13 season.

One thing that might happen especially if the CHL is still around is that Komets and Thunder will probably see more of each other next season.

I don't think there's any question that the CHL will be around next season.
