The teams that do not make the effort and investment in time, expertise and resources have no right to complain whatsoever. Perhaps their fans have a right to complain.

That is what is so upsetting and sad about Cumberland and Gloucester, there is little evidence that they are working hard to become better. If all teams worked hard to be better, it would be better hockey and a better league.

There are 5 teams in the league, IMO that have a proven track record at recruiting, PLK, CW, CP, Nepean and Brock, over a longer period of time. Hawkesbury did a good job last year but seem to only be successful in Quebec, mainly Montreal (big enough City though that could be enough). I agree that Kemptville seems to be turning a corner, DG in Ottawa works hard at it also, SF although a lot of local players HC always brings in some good players. In the end I believe that there are 9 teams having various levels of success at bringing in talent right now. Not everyone is going to be successful immediately or do not have all the resources/experience to be right away, but at least these teams seem to be working on it.
