San Jose's ECHL affiliate team is defunct. They cited MILLIONS in losses in 18 months. WTF? http://www.telegram....598/1009/SPORTS Sent from my EVO using Tapatalk

Kind of makes you wonder how a team could lose millions in such a short period of time.  I'm sure their team payroll is much less than $1M per year.

The funny thing is, every team in that conference has now made the playoffs. It was a joke already with 8 of 9 making it, but now it's even funnier.

How is a hockey club going under ever funny? That doesn't really do the game we love any good, does it?

 

Anyhow, I think the NHL needs to pay more attention to the AA clubs, reign them in like they have with the AHL a bit. The CHL and the ECHL should be merged, weak teams should be dropped, and there should be one AA farm league, period.

 

Another idea: maybe the western CHL and ECHL clubs could be reformed into "AHL West" like the BoG has wanted to create for the past couple seasons.

I don't think the team going under is funny. I would never wish that on any team. I'm talking about the situation itself. As a team, you already had a high chance of making the playoffs. Now you don't even have to try.

Dollar hotdog night, every night + Larry Murphy as new color commentator = Bankruptcy.  It's as simple as that.

 

Edit: That's why FSD let him go.  Too much of a strain on their promotional capacity.  You should have seen how flagrantly he took advantage of the "Homer for the Holidays" ticket package in years past.  Disgusting!

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."
