Yeah I noticed that there were a couple of ex EIHL sides in the EPL now... wondered what happened there.

Even given the differences in standards, is it in the national team's interest to have these distinct setups, and wouldn't the quality, wage levels and even fan bases "self-correct" if things were amalgamated? Would promotion / relegation between the NIHL and EPL be a total non-starter?

Again, not wholly aware of the back story as I've been out of contact with domestic hockey in this country for over a decade realistically.
