Where do Romford Raiders come into this? The only mention you made of NIHL teams being involved was as sacrificial lambs to make up the numbers in EIHL teams. Weren't we purely talking about an EIHL (with NIHL fillers) vs EPL cup?
I'm using this example to point out the flaws in the comparison to football and the FA cup.

I've no doubt you'll retort by using 'Belfast Giants vs Telford Tigers' or some such but why not 'Edinburgh Capitals/Hull Stingrays vs Guildford Flames/Manchester Phoenix'? I'm pretty sure they'd be fairly good games.
No, they wouldn't. You vastly underestimate the gap in standard between the EIHL and EPL.
