If any London team was to put together a successful entertaining EPL team then they'd need a hell of a lot of cash to entice 4 good imports and a good brit pack, pay them, house them, and even more cash to put together an EIHL side.
I'd like to know what you mean by 'pretty decent track records'? As long as I've been a hockey fan, London teams have done well to survive season to season, and really the only successful London sides came in the 30's/40's/50's.
