Being told the USPHL showcase this weekend is another step to EHF North and South. 2 divisions of one league. They will have multiple "showcases" during the season and will end with joint playoffs and single champion. Goal is get all the best players on the east coast in the same league and limit out of region travel to a couple times a year. The real life version of the super league. Not a lot changes but will drag remaining players out of E9 earlier. Full integration 2 years away...... actually makes sense as hockey nut parents wont be able to help themselves!
This will surely end all of the east coast kids going out west for the USHL!!
NCDC is going to take over. You heard it here first!!
This is going to start at Mites.... showcase this weekend is for the young kids....
Most public high schools where these kids are billeted are hardly 'some crap high school.' They are in the midwest after all. And Jerry York and Teddy Donato really care where the kid spent his last nine months of high school.
A 'really great prep school' is only in your mind. It has to be good because I'm dropping a lot of money. And compare prep hockey with the USHL for a moment...boom roasted.
Better to have a great experience in prep school, play in the NCDC and go play div 1 here in the northeast! You send your kid out to Waterloo
You guys done? NCDC vs USHL vs Prep has nothing to do with the OP's post.
Yes. A Super League is coming. EHF bigwigs realize they can't compete with HPHL and T1EHL drawing from a talent pool that's within 15 minutes of the rink and playing crappie teams six times each.
This applies to Organizations that have Junior teams like the SSK, IHC, BB etc
It has everything to do with the topic! NCDC is the real deal and will make its mark!
