Tailing the Komets

CHL reaction


Fri, 05/18/2012 - 8:36am

Blake, if you look at the opening paragraph in the article ("GLENDALE, AZ (May 17, 2012) – The Central Hockey League (CHL) announced today that the two-year agreement between the CHL and the International Hockey League (IHL) will not be renewed for the 2012-13 season.  Both the Bloomington and Quad Cities markets have signed long-term CHL agreements, while Dayton, Evansville and Fort Wayne are no longer affiliated with the CHL" ), it talks about the agreement between the IHL and CHL.  What is the legal status of the IHL as an entity?  Do you know if the IHL reached an agreement with the ECHL, or was it strictly the Komets.  I guess that the question is will the Frankes pop the IHL back out of their pocket again at some time in the future?  Is the IHL as a league formally dead, suspended, or what?

Not sure it really matters. It's dead for now but it could always come back some day if needed. Or maybe it's called Midwest Hockey League or whatever. Nothing is permanent in minor league hockey.
