Johnstown to the Federal Hockey League?

One of the first questions I asked myself when I heard the Johnstown Chiefs were moving to Greenville, SC, was "What other league would be a good fit for Johnstown?" Apparently, I wasn't the only one thinking this. Andy Richards, vice-commissioner of the new Federal Hockey League, is talking to key people in Johnstown about the possibilities. Mike Mastovich of the Johnstown Tribune-Democrat relates...http://www.tribune-democrat.com/sports/local_story_046235318.html

Other teams in the FHL are Rome NY, 1000 Islands (Alexandria Bay) NY, Danbury, CT & Ottawa, ON. The league is hoping to expand by 2 more teams by March 15, possibly including Jamestown, NY. Geographically, Johnstown would be a pretty good fit, especially if Jamestown joins also. Ottawa would be the longest road trip for Johnstown at 555 miles, but stops at Rome and 1000 Islands would ease the trip.
