Just a quick update...
After a failed attempt to spread their home schedule across six rinks in the Cape, the Cape Cod Bluefins folded, then became a road-only team, and are now the New York Bluefins (based in Cortland, NY).
And the outdoor experiment is over. The Outlaws played their next-to-last home game on Saturday, then cancelled today's game amid persistent rumors (confirmed today) that they had no plans of playing the last 6 weeks or so of road games. Why the FHL wrote a schedule that gave the Outlaws the opportunity to fold this early after a full home schedule is... perplexing.
Anyway, the FHL is down to 4 1/2 teams. I wouldn't put odds on the league staggering back for 2013-14 at this point.
