i hear a quite a few nhl pro scouts have been at games
why would they be here if every one believes it's such a beer league
there is good talent you'll be surprised
fans of lnah let's stand up for our league btw the goon image is dying out as we adopt the new 2005-2006 nhl rules
so you'll def see more offensive minded stars lik,e dominic beaudoin and players like him

I agree with you Neg. While I am no real fan of the league (how can I be living in Texas?) but I do think the image of the league and the quality of the play is improving. A lot of quality players are signing and playing there, especially starting with last season and on into this season as well. It is nearly at the level player-wise as the UHL or CHL. The only difference I think is that the lower end players in the LNAH are still worse than the other AA leagues.

The caliber of hockey is great but I'm not sure they will be able to keep it at this level. Right now, it's the goons that bring people in the arenas allowing the owners to sign very good hockey players. They can't get rid of the goons and violence without losing most of their fans.
The Québec franchise which is a huge success will probably have to be sold pretty soon and they will lose most of their visibility given by the owner (Qc #1 radio). Many teams have a lot of problems to follow the caliber, It could hurt many market soon specially that some goon league are emerging.
