There already are NAHL teams in New England.
Too bad, if true. My son doesn't play in the NCDC, but it seems like a compelling concept. Focusing in an area with such a high number of D1 and D3 teams seems logical.
Any idea how many D1 or D3 commitments in the league today?
Aside from many problems, including greed, the concept was valid - create a tuition free junior league in New England so teens wouldn't have to move to Iowa to play tier 2.
In reality, it became the dumping grounds for kids being cut from the NAHL league and other higher divisions. It has nothing to do with kids from New England whose parents are fitting the bill for free tuition hockey.
