I'm a fan. Happy to see they are going with white at home and dark for away games.

I like them, but they look at little too much like a "third jersey". I do like the idea of white jerseys at home. NHL used to do that in the past also. I really prefer the white NYR jersey to the blue one.

Pretty sure it's on par with other minor pro hockey leagues like the SPHL (Southern Pro Hockey League) and such. A few steps below the ECHL.

A few steps below the ECHL? Damn... so those guys are pretty much unlikely to ever see the light of day in the NHL or even the AHL, I assume?

One step below.

AHL - AAA
ECHL - AA
EPHL - A

Leagues like the CHL, IHL will claim they are AA, but they're closer to A. The only true AA hockey is the ECHL.

Some guys will make it into the AHL. Not many, and not often, but it could happen. NHL? Hmmmmmmmmmmm....

I look forward to going to some games. Should be a cheaper, fun alternative to the Rangers.

Not bad, I like the concept but they seem somewhat "beer league" for being part of an actual league. Of course, I'm sure they look a lot different when you see the actual sweater. Big fan of the fact that they used white for home.

I've wanted a minor league team in the area for the longest time.

You actually think it's on par with the UHL and CHL? I would definitely consider it a step below that as well.

I think it will be a great alternative for folks who can't afford or can't find access to Ranger tickets.

Right now, not a lot of families can afford to bring everybody to a Ranger or Isles game and pay for parking and food, not to mention souvenirs.

It may not be at the level of IHL or CHL yet. We'll know once the league begins.
