    Default Do the Kings need an ECHL affiliate?

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I have not heard anything about a new affiliate since the Monarchs folded at the end of the season. Reading is now the Flyers affiliate. Where will the kids go after all the camps are done? School me.

    As someone currently living in the Glens Falls NY area and the Thunder being our home team, losing the Monarchs is huge. The Monarchs and the Thunder had built up a HUGE rivalry and the games were always fun to go to- granted I liked it better when they were both AHL affiliates, but these ECHL games are good hockey.. dare I say in a lot of cases better than the AHL games we had in town. Manchester packing it up is a shame. From what I've heard, they were having attendance issues when they were AHL.. and things only got worse once it became ECHL.

    Since the LA Kings are an AHL team this year, I guess that makes Ontario an ECHL team.

    Currently, the only unaffiliated ECHL team is the Rapid City Rush, playing in Rapid City, South Dakota.

    The other two nearest teams are:

    The Idaho Steelheads (Dallas Stars)
    The Utah Grizzlies (Colorado Avalanche)


    Everyone else still around got rolled into the AHL West when the Reign and Monarchs flipped leagues.

    So, then according to Darby's list LA Kings join SJS, MTL, CBJ, FLA and ANA as NHL teams without an ECHL affiliate. Hmm. all 3 CA teams.

    Do we even have players to make it worth while? Because I seriously hate this team.

    Me: Frk no! It's not 2012. I'm a Kings' fan who cares?

    Having an ECHL affiliate sure helps get your #4-5 goalies some game time.
