OP is almost correct. 3 new organizations coming into the Fed at lower levels.
Original and other organizations will at 3rd or 4th teams. That is how the numbers of teams will grow. And yes this will destroy the BHL and Valley leagues. Oh and the MPHL is over.
so what are we Tier 1 yellow and green now? so a couple new orgs at lower levels and you think that is going to destroy 3 leagues? go back to bed EMHL parent and keep dreaming that because your kid plays "tier 1" he is somehow a good player.
