Statement From The Charlotte Checkers

via the Charlotte Checkers,

While we are aware that the Carolina Hurricanes are nearing an affiliation agreement with the AHL’s Chicago Wolves, the Hurricanes have had little dialogue with us regarding this matter.

In an era when NHL teams are placing great value on affiliations with closer proximity between the two clubs, we understand the confusion that such a move would cause.

We will explore other options for our affiliation and look forward to continuing in the American Hockey League when play resumes.

Awkward.

This reads almost like a press release someone would put out
if they heard second-hand their recent serious girlfriend/boyfriend
was seriously seeing someone new.

Carolina sure seems to ignore certain norms in hockey personnel/business.

It does seem to make so much more sense to have a local affiliate both for
logistics in player recalls and development and to build a regional fan base.

Maybe Chicago means more revenue for the major league team and a bigger market and exposure? Or who knows what else is going on behind the scenes.
