When you consider factors such as inability to shake a former name, having nine teams west of the Mississippi River and the existence of two other nearby hockey organizations who both use the CHL acronym, it's hard to say it isn't time for a big change.
I'm putting my money on the new "East West Hockey League" or EWHL for short. Please share your ideas. I'm anxious to how creative we all can be.
How about waiting for your team to do something in a league they avoided joining for years before advocating for needless change?
