Donbass-2, Lviv, and Berkut want to turn the league into a major-junior league?

i can understand D2 wanting this (they're doing it anyway), and I guess Lviv has nothing to lose, but why would Berkut say this now after stacking up on vets?

I don't like the idea, maybe have a minimum number of kids on every team to help development but turning the entire league into a U-25? That would just force every Ukrainian player 26+ (of which are most) to play in Belarus or the VHL or wherever....I don't get it. Not only that, but it would screw up the idea of the Ukrainian Championship itself.

Ukraine doesn't have enough decent U25 players to ice an 8 team league either
belorus' has something similar going on (not that strict though), but imho this idea is stupid, unless each and every one of these 8 teams moves onto VHL/OBL and uses PHL as the farm-league
