Northstars only one going to E9. Others are PHL candidates.
sadly this is what i heard as well. Meetings have nothing to do with E9 because of entry fee's. PHL willing to take them on for no additional charges and less team fees. Suddenly there is more money in the owners pockets. If you think these owners care about some mysterious "prestige" of the EHF you are mistaken. They lose their best players to "Elite" teams anyway. This way they can keep the current product and make more money and offer "Premier" or "elite" level hockey. None of this Tier 1 multi colored crap.
There has been two meetings in the past month. Crimson, Wolverines, Shamrocks, Manchester Flames and NorthStars all headed to the E9/BHL next year. All over Parity and not being able to play into an Elite division. You heard it here first.
