Not only the veteran rule, but minor league baseball doesn't have Europe to deal with. Hockey players who can't make the NHL can make a solid living overseas and a lot of minor league cities on this side of the pond simply can't compete for high-end talent.
There had often been talk about trying to make the ECHL a Double A league to get a 30-30-30 system going, but the economics just won't support the concept.
