Any chance of any Slovak MHL teams in the near future. To me it seems like the MHL is being set up the right way, and is being set up as a nice alternative to the CHL. Getting 2-3 Slovak MHL teams would be a very good way for the Slovaks to start drawing their players back home, to play in a league at home that can offer the competition that the CHL offers. Both the CZE and SVK junior leagues have been pilfered by the CHL for years, and having that stronger competition back home might help them retain their talent closer to home. Also allow them to disband the Orange Team playing in the SVK Extraliga, which is a bad idea, IMO. Having those youngsters being pummeled by men constantly, and then having any talented players stolen by other teams in league at will, is a bad strategy, IMO.
Slovan's GM said in an online interview that they will have an MHL team in less than two years.
