Thanks for the info Elvis, living in kanazawa there is little or no news or coverage of the asia league. I hope to make it over to Nikko one of the these months to see a game in person.
It was sure was nice to get an update on the grate one. I remember his time in Edmonton very fondly.

Well... its not bad, I would guess its a bit like the ECHL in North America. The Japanese teams work their buts off but as cliche as this sounds they lack size. nothing they can really do about that but they havnt really found out how to deal with it well yet. Their skill level isnt as high as it should be to play the quick passing skill game of smaller teams. See my reports of the recent Oly. qualifying games to get a sence of what the Japan national team is like compared to the Swiss national team and Norway.
Japan does have one prospect that could make something for him self in N.America. Yutaka Fukufuji came out of knowwhere (everywhere in japan is nowhere in the hockey world) and was drafted by the LA Kings, he started as the back up for their ECHL team and did so well when he had the chance and now close to the end of the season is up playing with the Manchester monachs in the AHL. His size ( 6,1 170pounds) is typical how big the players here are, they may have good hight but they physicaly can't bulk up, they dont have the body mass that you need to compeat pysicaly with the rest of the world. anyways, my two thoughs .......

^ Just on that note, i have to mention that i agree they lack size to play a physical game, which would probably result in the import 'big' guys dominating, but i'd think in a professional league, they would have the trainers with knowledge on how they can get bigger.

My brother is a trainer, and ive studied sports science also, and i put on an extra 15kg of muscle simply in my OFFSEASON training regime. Along with some teammates of mine ahve all have good gains. Its not that hard.. EAT BIG , LIFT BIG, and SLEEP BIG! then you get big! ALIH trainers need to get the players into the gym hardcore for their sake, but im sure they will get to that soon

Congrats to kokudo, they seem to DOMINATE. ( PRPIC anyone? )

Cost of living in Japan is so high, all the food required to bulk up that much would probably cost a fortune. Any thoughts?

This Northern Asia league is a very exciting idea though, especially if within the next 15 years NHL players play in a Winter Olympics there, hopefully it could ignite interest for the sport.

You could bulk up useing carb's here without breaking the bank but if you want to eat meat other than fish then forget it, you'll go broke. Beef and pork is out of control expensive. You could eat lots of pasta and breads though for cheep. Japan has been going though slow deflaition of prices over the past 10 years so things arnt quite as expensive as they once were but its still the most expecsive country in the world to live in.

I'm living just across the way in South Korea, a just as modern country with hockey teams in the league, including the one with Esa Tikkanen.

And the cost of living is very low.

Go across town in a taxi for under two dollars. A buck to rent a movie. Dinner and drinks out for two people for under $40 (and that is going on a binge too!)

Japan is INSANELY expensive in comparison. Every time I visit there I have to double or triple or quadriple the cost of everything.

If I could get NHL Centre Ice here overseas (I pray some sort of Internet-pay-per-view deal is reached with the NHL) I'll stick around an extra year or two.

Anyone with an undergrad degree in anything can go to Korea and get free accommodation and the equivalent of $ 2,000 (U.S.), and save over half of that while still eating and drinking out four or five times a week.

It really is sweet here. A hidden secret. Those who complain about life here only do so because the financial situation is too good to give up,... for now anyways.

It's my honest opinion that all that Japan needs to raise in the world rankings is better coaching, and I mean a cup winning coach.

Look what Jean Perron did with Israel. I like to think the hockey potential of Japan is better than the hockey potential of Israel.

Tell me about it. Being somewhat out of shape and coming from a mild west coast summer I spent a fortune buying drinks out of vending machines on the non stop hot and humid weather that I experienced when I was there for two weeks. I drained a large part of my bank account in that time period too.

CC Lemon was so good I wish I could get it in Canada.
