GSHL perhaps needs to take a hard look within themselves. What's next then minor league affiliate jerseys, player contracts, trade deadlines?

Get it to 4 teams, the rest go back to their respective zones... AP your late cuts and be done with it. Focus on keeping solid coaches at tier II and for sure at AA, that's where the focus needs to be.
Pokecheck, i dont care what they want to call there 'tier ii' system, but you are so right in suggesting the GSHL needs to reconsider its role. Is the goal to win, or to continue developing quality players? Either way, why can't SMHA handle it alone? If the original vote a few years ago was an almost unanimous NO to travel and join SBAAHL, what has changed so dramatically now? And why do it without a vote this time? I say, force it on them and see how many parents actually want to travel. 1 or 2 seasons max should show if they have enough parents (and quality coaches) to compete with province. Its pretty shallow to suggest a few losses is enough to try change the system that has worked for a long time.
