from what i've read, though, they're hoping that the rule changes will favor smaller, faster teams. i hope so, though i'm pretty sure the manchester-LA expess will continue to roll.
exactly. The Kings/Monarchs are NOT built for dump and chance hockey. It can be a good system if you have the right players to play it. But if you dont have kids with size and kids who are willing to go to into the corners and behind the goal and be willing to fight for the puck then its not going to work.
I have not seen that at all the past few seasons in Manchester.
