Very sad and I believe their last home game of the season was close to sold out..

Not bad considering its Dayton AND spring break.....lol

Does anyone expect Dayton back next season? How long can those owners continue to lose money... Bloomy seems on the ropes; but thier radio guy assured everyone this past weekend that the Prairie Thunder will be back next season; but in which pro league??? Quad City wasnt packing them in this season... How will E-Ville do next season in the new barn?

New league, same old questions....bummer.

All the more reasons these teams need to merge back into a regional league.

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 6:06pm

The other side of Hara must be full. But I agree there needs to be a more regional league. The CHL and ECHL need to form one league. A lot of ECHL teams are closer to Fort Wayne than the CHL. And yes I know there are teams farther also. But there should only be one AA league. There is only one AAA league, right? (AHL)

Snuff, while having a more regionalized leagued makes a ton of sense, 1300 fans isnt going to make it in any "AA" league. Unless of course they are subsidised by other teams and we've seen how well that went...

Sad deal in Dayton. I think bloomy & Dayton will fold after this year.

I think Dayton will be back. They are already selling season tix for next year.

Kind of what you get anywhere else in hockey other than here when you play on a Tuesday night.

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 6:46pm

How are they making it Blake? They are no where near what is generally believed to be whats needed just to come close to breaking even...

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 6:48pm

I have no inside information on Dayton,but how can they continue with the few people that goes to the games.Just like bloomy.

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 7:01pm

Dayton down 4-3 with about 17 minutes to go in the game...

No score in the QC/Eagles game, early in the second...

KometKrazy there can and should actually be 3 AA leagues.
You are right about the CHL/ECHL merger but they need to then break apart based on region. Draw a line from Wheeling east and you get a league. Ohio to the Mississippi River gets you a central league and then west of the Mississippi can get you a western league. Actually you could probably make a fourth league. Go West of the Miss to Colorado and then the West coast could probably field its own league. The AAA leagues need to do the same thing. The Philly to Abbotsford trip is plain stupid.

They keep adding owners. I have no idea. I'm just telling you what I've heard.

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 7:38pm

I hear ya Blake.... I just wonder how even a regional league would work for some of these cities (except maybe lose a lil less money) when they are well under where they need to be attendance wise... Excluding E-Ville who played in a tiny barn this season, no other former IHL2 team is where they would need to be to even survive in a AA league in the midwest, let alone a wider ranging league like the CHL...

BTW, speaking of Dayton, they were swept by the Rush tonight...4-3

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 7:40pm

Dayton lost 4 to 3.

HUGE game in QC tonight that could determine a lot the rest of the playoffs.

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 7:53pm

Yep, still scoreless going into the third period.... Sounds like Brown is standing on his head for the Mallards... Eagles are outshooting the Mallards 30-16...

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:09pm

still 0-0 with about 10 minutes to go in the QC/Colorado game...

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:20pm

Eagles are up 1-0 with about 3:30 to go.....

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:28pm

Nelson scores into the empty net with just a few seconds remaining..... Colorado takes the 2 games to 1 lead in the series...

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:36pm

Missouri forces a Game 5 tomorrow night vs. Wichita....

Tue, 04/05/2011 - 8:45pm

The Komets 2011 playoff anthem?

Just curious -- What happens if a team sells season tickets for the next season and then folds before the season begins?
