There is elite level talent to support NHL expansion. There is zero talent to support junior hockey expansion.
AHL, KHL Europe.
Seriously are you equating junior hockey expansion as the same as NHL expansion?
USHL could expand because the level of talent in the league has increased due to NCAA becomming more desireable but they did so at the same time as expanding import limits so they get more high level talent from Canada and Europe. If they expand again they would have to import more.
If NCAA were to expand by more than 1 program here or there they would probably only do so but lifting the ban on major junior kids. That would only be if the entire Pac 12 started hockey teams and the rest of the Big 10 for example.
I want free hockey. Can I just sign up for NCDC?
Bingo, we have a winner!
NCDC just solidified its fate as even more of a joke than it is today!
Some of the top point leaders in some teams played on bad U16s teams last year. Give me a break folks!

Watched good game yesterday between NCDC's two top teams -- Jersey Hitmen & Jr. Bruins. It's too bad gap between best in league & some of the other teams is so wide
I bet the guy living under the rock thinks it's a great idea to spend billions of dollars on a wall the middle of no where that even the people living in those states realize it's the stupidest thing going. Make America Back-ass-wards again.
NAHL has announced that a new team is going into Lewiston, Maine. Between the Generals and the new Maine team, the geographic squeeze begins on the NCDC.
NCDC equivalent to a low end u18 team from the T1EHL
Slow, bad bad passing, limited systematic play. A few good players in league, lots of bad ones.
