E9 and AYHL
The current Elite EHF/E-9 split creates too many watered down teams. There should be an Elite north/south league with 6 teams from the Boston area and 6 from NY/NJ area (don't really care what you call it). Play within your respective division most weekends. One weekend per month you are either traveling or hosting a super series type weekend and only playing games against the other division. Everyone starts fresh with no player transfer rules in year 1. After that player transfer rules should be somewhat limiting but not as restrictive as it is now. This should be for Squirt ages and older.
The mite level should strictly be cross-ice in year 1 with no travel to the other division. Second year mite should still be mostly cross-ice with a few weekend tournaments to introduce them to full-ice. This is better for development. No one benefits from seeing the little benders skate end to end with little resistance.
God willing the owners from the top EHF/E-9/AYHL organizations will get together to figure this out.
E9 league applications....that seems like fact
