NAHL is getting diluted

With another expansion announced this afternoon in Texas, and another rumored to be announced later this year in Kansas City, is the talent in the NAHL getting diluted?

Re: NAHL is getting diluted

Stealing kids from the play-to-play teams. . . no problem with that.

Re: NAHL is getting diluted

If course it is...go watch a Gens game. They are bad.

And yet your kid still couldn't make the team...

No interest in Gens as long as TL and JL are involved. Ice will always be tilted in some kids' direction and away from others. No personal integrity, not a meritocracy. I realize that's a true statement in many, many situations but from personal experience, more so within LH. And, it's on display more and more as time passes.

As for the rest of the league, you're right, he hasn't...yet. The dilution of the league absolutely brings it further within reach. if he were the same player he is now five years ago, he probably wouldn't have had a shot.

Very accurate. TL all about his kids teams and certain players.

Angry Joe is just a little runt bitter that he never got bigger than a Bantam, didn’t have a hockey career and had to live in the shadows of his very mediocre never made it brother...

Angry Joe showing true colors with what he is doing with Knights Juniors and Giants Midgets. Embarrassing

I like how you made a little humor there

Re: NAHL is getting diluted

It's part of the plan to make USAH path a better choice over CHL. Look for USHL to allow expand the allowance for roster spots to more Canadian/Euro players per team. That ups the talent level in USHL and pushes more players to NAHL. So theoretically it shouldn't dilute the talent level if imports increase.

Re: NAHL is getting diluted

NAHL's biggest competition is with BCHL. More kids, even from New England are going that route. Kids who maybe can make a USHL roster as a 3/4 liner are opting to try BCHL for top 2-line opportunities.

Re: NAHL is getting diluted

Correct, why? WAY better fan base due less concentration of pro and college teams and economic model much better for owners

College is primarily competition for Junior hockey in Northeast.
