    South Carolina, Greenville, Gwinnett and Florida from ECHL and then SPHL is a real steady (relatively) southern region minor league.

    They are actually called the Mississippi RiverKings now after they moved from the rink in Memphis to a rink in Mississippi.

    And as of now, they are the only CHL franchise that has moved to the SPHL for the upcoming season.

    With the announcement of the MudBugs folding, the RiverKings were looking at some serious travel expenses next season. Geographically it makes sense to be a part of the SPHL to save some money.

    I assume you mean the Central League?

    Central League teams are significantly better than SPHL teams.

    SPHL top lines can compete with Central League players - and perhaps some SPHL second lines can.

    That's about it.
