    SAN DIEGO (Ticker) - Instead of cashing in on offers to play in Europe, Curtis Brown has decided to help promote the game of hockey in California.

    Brown on Monday agreed to terms with the San Diego Gulls of the ECHL and could see action in the team's game against the Bakersfield Condors on Wednesday.

Frankly, I never understood how they keep the name East Coast Hockey League after the WHL merger that put teams in Anchorage, Bakersfield, Fresno, San Diego, Las Vegas, etc.

I'm also interested to see how much farther they can grow, with a 33-team league on the horizon.

Actually, they "officially" changed the name to just ECHL back when they absorbed the West Coast League.

Sorta dumb to have them be ECHL, with no explanation as to what it stands for. Sorta like the WWE, if anybody were to say "I AM WORLD WRESTLING ENTERTAINMENT CHAMPION" he would sound like a moron.

I blame my lousy 8th place standing on picking all Bruins for my East Squad. Joe Thornton didn't help me. Maybe my all Lightning squad in this round will do better?
