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?
Stealing kids from the play-to-play teams. . . no problem with that.
If course it is...go watch a Gens game. They are bad.
And yet your kid still couldn't make the team...
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
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.
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.
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.
