The SEL is a good league and a higher league than OEL has played in. It would likely do OEL good to play in a higher league before the NHL, but no one knows for sure and it will be hard to tell even for Coyotes management until he attends camp. If you don't think the SEL is a good hockey league, you will just have to agree to disagree with just about everyone else.
