LNAH expands to Cornwall

http://www.lnah.com/nouvelle.aspx?i=9207

I know the LNAH doesn't have much of a reputation around here but its definitely a more stable and skilled league the FHL which gets dozens of pages devoted to it. So, now that i've got that off my chest, the LNAH announced the addition of the Cornwall Riverkings for the 2012-13 season. This is actually a relocation of the Windsor Wild franchise, they will be playing at 5000 seat Ed Lumley arena. Hopefully being closer to the rest of the league will help the league expand into Ontario and increase its footprint and marketability.

Here's an english article...

This might be the final nail for the Akwesasne team, idk why anyone in Cornwall would travel to the island with another pro team right there. I guess they could move to Massena

In the article the brains of the operation Mitch Gagne screwed up and said that Cornwall won its' three Memorial Cups as part of the OHL. This is of course incorrect, all three were won as part of the QMJHL. The OHL years were lean years for the team. You would think that since he was joining a Quebec based league, he would get his facts right that Cornwall was a winning franchise in the Q.

"Skilled" and the LNAH do not belong in the same sentence. (Just saying.) Consider that the LNAH averages 3 fights or so a game compared to .6 in the NHL(as of 2010-11).

Those who bag on the skill level of the LNAH are generally those who have not attended a game, nor even checked out the rosters. Compared to the Central League or FHL the skill level is as good or better. Just because there is fighting does not mean there is no skill.

When there are fights the teams send out the "goon lines" to fight each other. I spoke with one player's fiancee who moved from the Elmira Jackals to the British League to Trois-Rivieres of the LNAH, then back to the ECHL, and she said that the skill players are way less likely to be hit with a cheap shot in the LNAH because essentially the fighting lines are on the ice against each other.

Perhaps if some of the American minor leagues followed their lead for an entertainment model (especially at single A like the FHL) then we would see more stability in that league.

Still less goonery and mismanagement and all around unproffesionalism they would get in the FHL.
